Honeybush

Loose leaf

Caffeine-free


Named honeybush after the honey smell from its bright yellow blossoms. Savour the subtle hints of caramel and floral notes that dance upon your palate. It is similar to rooibos tea in many ways, but this differs in the location it grows at. It grows wild in small mountain ranges southwest of South Africa’s eastern cape.

If you need a caddy to store your tea you can find it here.

Really Good Tea

I enjoy this tea a lot. The sweetness is not overpowering nor sickly but seems to enhance the underlying flavours

Rooibos 2.0

Technically it is Rooibos, but then again, technically, perhaps better than Rooibos.

Loving this new flavour! Definitely a hint of honey there - a new firm favourite 🤩

Lovely flavour

Think this will be a favourite and will buy again. It has a slight tang of sweetness and revives energy levels in afternoon

Wow

Bought on a whim as I’m a big fan of roobois tea. Never tried it before and wow I was not disappointed! The clue is in the name, a cross between roobois and a sweet aftertone that really tastes honey like. Bag lasts for two cups. Highly recommend

Totally Delicious

We love rooibos so thought we'd give honeybush a go. To me it tastes like rooibos but sweeter - as if there is a bit of honey added - and in fact a hint of rose too. Delicate and delectable.

Honeybush

This is a more subtle flavour than is cousin Rooibos. Very pleasant but easy to overwhelm the flavours if you a a fan of adding milt to this kind of tea.

Lovely tea

I became a tea drinker after I was told I’m intolerant to coffee, we’ve ordered a few different teas from Shibui (vanilla is always ordered) but I wanted to try something different and this is my new favourite.
