Honeybush Tea

Honeybush comes from the Cyclopia plant, a shrub native to South Africa. It is considered a gentle tea as it is naturally sweet and caffeine-free, which makes it ideal drink to add to your bedtime routine to help promote sleep. Honeybush tea is more than just a soothing nighttime tonic, as traditionally it is kept simmering on the stove all day for easy access to a cup of tea and to add a pleasant air of well-being in the home. This is possible because unlike tea from the Camellia sinensis plant, Honeybush doesn't turn bitter when boiled too long. The honey-like aroma and taste make it the perfect all-day sipper.

Low in tannins but considered relatively high in bioactive compounds such as xanthones and flavanones, which have potential immune-optimizing benefits. Early research suggests that the polyphenols (antioxidant-rich micronutrients) in honeybush could have anti-inflammatory properties and be beneficial to heart health. In parts of South Africa, the tea has historically been used to treat coughs, aid digestion, even treat symptoms of menopause.
