Herbal honeybush tea is a close cousin of rooibos: both are unique to the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa, sharing a similar malty sweetness. Honeybush tea tends to have a fuller body, taking its name from the honeyed fragrance of its flowers and the rich, syrupy tones which come through in the cup. You'll even taste warm, slightly roasted notes, a bit like honey on hot buttered toast. We've added luxurious Madagascan vanilla to bring out the natural creaminess of the tea and finished with a light scattering of orange pieces.

Lovely TasteBy Daz from Norwich, UK on 10/18/2018A very nice creamy light tea. The vanilla, honey flavour and scent are present but not overpowering, and it blends well with the natural sweetness of the honeybush. I also like the hint of orange. Great hot or cold.

We’ve given our herbal honeybush the number 55 – believe it or not, bees will fly about 55,000 miles to make just one pound of honey. That’s 1½ times around the world!

Origin: South Africa
Herbal rooibos and honeybush are unique to the Cederberg Mountains in South Africa, where they've been harvested by Khoisan tribes for centuries. The leaves are usually processed in a similar way to black tea, giving a fruity, caffeine-free infusion.
South African "Red Bush" Tea
Rooibos – a bush grown on the mountains of South Africa – has long been harvested to create a herbal infusion, with a smooth, treacle-toned taste. Seventeenth-century Dutch settlers soon developed a taste for the drink as a handy substitute for tea, but local bushmen had already passed down the secret of rooibos for generations. The leaves undergo a similar process to black tea, being oxidised for a distinctive reddish-brown colour and malty flavour. Occasionally, rooibos is produced in a more similar manner to green tea: you'll find this unusual "green" rooibos in our Rainforest Rooibos blend.
