Refreshing and cleansing with hints of honey and finish reminiscent of light Madagascar pepper. Organic Honeybush tea is caffeine free and high in antioxidants. The tea is also high in Pinitol, a modified sugar that is reportedly helpful in lowering blood sugar levels. Most importantly, the tea has a wonderfully sweet, slightly astringent flavor with deep overtones of honey - the overall flavor is unique and has been compared to hot apricot jam or a dried fruit mix. When brewing the tea, try adding a spoonful of honey to the cup, it will help open the flavor, and enhance the natural honey like character of the tea. The sweet Honeybush, truly one of the more complex flavors of Africa!
These days, much of the organic Honeybush produced for market is still harvested from wild varieties of the plant. The bush is commonly grown in the Cederberg District, or the Eastern Cape, of South Africa.
