The Unknown Secret of Honeybush Tea
(OrganicJar) Honeybush tea is probably the most underrated and least known health beverage I’ve come across. Grown in the high mountains of the Western and Eastern Cape regions of South Africa, this unique plant is not only delicious but it is extremely healthy for you. Honeybush tea is made from the leaves, stems and flowers of the honeybush shrub. It’s been cultivated by the indigenous people of South Africa for hundreds of years. The Tea contains no caffeine, very little tannins, has many of the same health benefits as rooibos tea and makes a superb iced tea. Each cup contains healthy anti-oxidants, along with minerals such as: Calcium, Copper, Iron, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc. This herb is said to have positive effects in preventing breast, prostate, and uterine cancer; reducing the risk of osteoporosis; having anti-fungal and anti-viral properties; lowering cholesterol levels, and much more. Most important of all, Honeybush is a pleasant tasting beverage that can be consumed every day.

My Thoughts:

I really love honeybush tea! I currently drink the organic honeybush tea from Numi. If you haven’t tried it before, I highly recommend it. Honeybush tea is also a great tea base if you want to create your own tea. I just started adding fresh organic mint leaves to each cup…so delicious! Would love to hear what everyone else thinks of Honeybush Tea. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter: CLICK HERE

  1. I love Honeybush tea too! I was first introduced to Honeybush tea in 2007 and was very impressed with its delicious flavor and was inspired to write about it on my old blog – http://www.naturallivingcuisine.com/2007/09/21/red-green-rooibos-red-espresso/

    Ironically, I had a cup of Rooibos tea yesterday evening and this morning. Adding organic mint leaves so so good. Yum! Thanks for this write-up. :-)

  2. Have you tried Tulsi Tea?

    Has anyone tried this? It’s about 7,100 year old remedy from the Vedas. It’s reported to have remarkable healing qualities. I haven’t personally tried it, Chris Gussa sells it, and consumes it daily and says it is absolutely fantastic and imparts an overall sense of well being, relaxation, and healing.

    It has a huge list of beneficial effects, and is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and other properties.


    Swanson’s Vitamins sells it cheap.

  3. Great info ‘twitter’ I’m going to order some and try it. Cheers!

  4. The cool thing about honeybush is that its like rooibos without the astringency. It still has aspathin which helps reduce fat and other great flavanoids but tea honeybush I get from Art of Tea is Organic Honeybush and I notice a difference between that and the store brand stuff.

  5. Honeybush doesn’t actually contain aspalathin; that polyphenol is unique to rooibos. Rooibos and honeybush are commonly lumped together because they have a similar taste, appearance, and are both from South Africa, but they are two completely different species. They both have many of the same health effects, however, and both are very good for you.

    I like the green varieties of both. Green rooibos tastes like green tea without so much of the grassy flavor and none of the astringency, while green honeybush is very aromatic, tasting rather fruity. I’ve only been able to find green honeybush tea at Upton Teas, but green rooibos is available from a lot of online tea stores.

  6. Hodge – Thanks for the great info! I didn’t know about green honeybush tea, can’t wait to try it!

  7. I like the Rooibos/Honeybush tea blend from Mundi teas. It is simply delicious and contains the health properties of both organic teas. Yummy!

  8. Hey all you Honeybush fans,
    My family business, Gathering Place, sells Honeybush tea. It’s the best you’ll taste, wild crafted in South Africa, we have it loose for the true tea experience as well as in tea bags for convenience. Our website is http://www.gatheringplacetrading.com! We are going to South Africa this winter to meet the “farmers” of our Honeybush tea. Thanks for this great website!

  9. I’m a tea lover myself but I’ve never had honey bush tea before, I’ll definitely try this out.

  10. Tastes alright too.

  11. is honeybush scd legal?

  12. I just tried Honeybush and found it to be mild and refreshing. For other medical reasons, I have to stay with mild teas and after the research, the healing properties are amazing. I received mine from saravenalife.com. The owner is a nurse practicing in herbal remedies. This is going to be my new daily tea.

  13. I bought a box of the Honeybush, Mandarin & Orange tea (Twining’s) while at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park a couple of weeks ago. It’s delicious.
