 A cousin to the Rooibos plant, honeybush is a little deeper and little more woodsy than Rooibos.

Honeybush tea is a naturally sweet tea indigenous to South Africa. It’s caffeine-free with a honey-like aroma and taste.

The antioxidants in honeybush tea grant it a wide range of health benefits, including improved bone and skin health, as well as antidiabetic and anticancer properties.

Just like Rooibos, honeybush was discovered in South Africa in the 18th century. The honeybush shrub owes its name to its characteristic appearance. The blossoms are bright yellow and smell like honey, whereas the leaves are somewhat rougher than those of Rooibos. The South Africans also call it "vegetable bush", due to its pod-shaped fruits and
knobbly roots. The wild growing plants thrive exclusively on small mountain ranges in the Longkloof District. In the 1990s it was re-discovered and is cultivated today for commercial purposes in 35 different locations. The infusion
tastes pleasantly sweet and aromatic.
