The first time I’ve tried this tea- Honeybush. Love the flavor and aroma. It’s like energized peace. Also appreciate the loose leaf.

Full bodied caffeine free

While I like many herbal flavors, they don’t satisfy like black teas do. Honeybush is the first non-caffeinated tea I have found to fill the bill.


South African honeybush from the Western Cape region.

Blend Numerology

There’s no hidden meaning for No. 16 Honeybush. But we’re open to suggestions.


For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Steep five minutes while finding peace within yourself.

South African Botanical

Honeybush is an evergreen shrub, closely related to rooibos, that grows in the eastern Cape of South Africa. Although there have been attempts at cultivating and farming honeybush, most species are found and harvested in nature, also known as wildcrafting. The slender leaves, stems and flowers are hand cut and then allowed to oxidize in the sun. Honeybush is known to be high in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, similar to rooibos. As the name implies, it has a distinctly honey-like aroma. Naturally caffeine-free, honeybush has notes of peach, cedar and sweetgrass, with a pinkish golden hue in the cup.


Clanwilliam is a small farming town of 7,000 nestled between the Cederburg Mountains and the Olifants River in Western Cape, South Africa and is ground zero for the world's supply of Honeybush, which is harvested in September and October.
