Honeybush Organic

Brewing Instructions

Named honeybush because its bright yellow blossoms smell like honey. It has many similarities with rooibos but it grows wild in small mountain ranges southwest of South Africa's eastern cape.

Ingredients: Organic South African honeybush.

Really wonderful product. I dislike Rooibos tea but love this Honeybush! Well done for sourcing a beautiful product that grows wild in South Africa and is not farmed. Thoughtfully packaged too!

Reminds me of home

Honeybush tea is the lesser known of the South African teas, and seeing as I don't like redbush if I want to be reminded of home in tea form it is great to have it in the flat. The tea is good quality and brews fine in a few minutes.

Brewing Instructions

The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.

It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.

It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!
