Honeybush Tea is an all natural Fynbos herbal product
Honeybush Tea (Cyclopia spp.) is a natural product from the Fynbos Biome. Where two oceans meet, people gather to embrace this unique tea that is free from caffeine, preservatives, sugar or honey – a product kissed by cool sea breezes from the southernmost tip of Africa. Our tea is processed near and distributed from the Agulhas Plain, an area acknowledged as a biodiversity hotspot. All Honeybush Teas are all natural Fynbos herbal products. The Honeybush Tea that Agulhas Honeybush Tea uses for their tea is predominantly grown on the southern slopes of the Bredasdorp Mountains, overlooking the Agulhas Plain. Honeybush Tea has a lovely aroma and a natural sweet flavour and is suitable for diabetics, babies, pregnant women as well as people embracing the vegan lifestyle.
What is Honeybush Tea?
Honeybush Tea is a herbal tea made from the leaves, flowers, and stems of the honeybush plant (Cyclopia spp.), which is native to South Africa. It is closely related to another South African herbal tea called rooibos. Like rooibos, honeybush tea is caffeine-free and is often enjoyed for its mild, slightly sweet, and honey-like flavor. This naturally sweet herbal tea with potential health benefits has an unique flavor profile. It is a good option for those looking to explore different types of herbal teas or seeking a caffeine-free beverage option.
How is Honeybush Tea Processed?
Honeybush Tea is a caffeine-free herbal tea indigenous to South Africa. Timing greatly influences the flavour and quality.The processing includes the following: Harvesting by hand, cutting, fermentation, drying, and finally sieving.
FERMENTATION: Honeybush Tea has the natural ability to undergo a natural fermentation process, but with added heat the quality can be greatly improved.
DRYING: After fermentation, the tea is spread in modified greenhouses to reduce moisture content.
SIEVING: After drying the tea is sieved in different cuts to ensure consistent-sized leavens and stems for packaging.
PACKAGING: Tea is packaged, labeled and ready for lab testing, and ultimately national sales or direct export.
In 1994, our journey with Honeybush Tea began when we moved to the beautiful Overberg region. It didn’t take long for us to plant our first Honeybush Tea seeds on our farm. Back then, very little was known about Honeybush Tea’s ecological preferences and its potential in the tea industry. We started with a small breeding block on our farm to figure out which Honeybush Tea species thrived in our climate and soil.
Today, we’re proud to have around 80 hectares of thriving Honeybush Tea, all stemming from seeds we harvested in that initial mother block. Our second-generation tea farm is our pride and joy, and we hope that those who enjoy our tea experience the same pleasure that we have in producing it.
