Organic Honeybush Tea 50g (20 tea bags)
The Honeybush shrub only grows in specific places in the fynbos biome of the Western and Eastern Cape. During the flowering period in spring (September to October), the bushes are easily recognised covered with distinctive, deep-yellow flowers, which have a characteristic sweet honey scent.
The Honeybush plants are harvested by hand throughout the year. Their leaves and stems are then cut, fermented and dried to produce a pleasant, mildly sweet and highly aromatic tea with an impressive variety of health promoting properties.
