Attention Vanilla Tea Lovers:
Lose yourself in the rich, warm dark sugar aroma of Vanilla Honeybush tea. The gentle roasted taste and honey aroma of the South African honeybush plant blends perfectly with the soft vanilla bean flavor. Our Vanilla Honeybush tea is light with a lingering sweetness of honey.
What is Honeybush tea?
Named for the honey-like aroma of the honeybush flowers, the Honeybush plant is grown on the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Honeybush tea is an herbal tea made from the leaves of the honeybush plant. On the Western Cape of South Africa grows a close relative, Rooibos, or red bush tea.
Honeybush vs Rooibos tea: What is the difference?
As two herbal teas grown in South Africa, Honeybush and Rooibos are close relatives. Both rich in antioxidants and low in tannins meaning they can steep longer without becoming bitter. The flavor of both actually increases the longer they are steeped.
However, the big difference is in the flavor. While Rooibos is naturally sweet and a bit earthy with a nutty flavor, Honeybush is fuller-bodied and reveals wood and honey undertones making it sweeter than rooibos.
Honeybush Tea Benefits
For hundreds of years, South Africans have used honeybush tea to treat coughs, menopausal symptoms, and digestive issues. Research is ongoing for its potential to treat several major diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
