A full bodied honeybush with a well balanced smooth hazelnut flavor. It brews up a warm reddish-brown color and is full-bodied and slightly spicy with a sweet aftertaste. Superb cup of tea, a sip will take you to a memorable place in Namibia.
Honeybush grows in the western Cape of South Africa and has a distinctly honey-like aroma. Hand harvested in September and October.
Honeybush is less known than its cousin rooibos. Honeybush is an herb that is gaining a lot of admirers in America these days. Like rooibos, it is naturally caffeine free and high in antioxidants and minerals. It's mellow and earthy like rooibos, but it has a sweet, honey-like richness with a reddish brown hue in the cup.
