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.
As enriching as it is on its own, our Honeybush Peach blend adds a whole extra layer of flavor and function to the mix. In the cup you'll find green rooibos (an incredible source of minerals and antioxidants), tangerine and peach (for a dose of Vitamin C) and a host of flower petals for a soft layer of calming character. The perfect blend to create an overall sense of well-being, peace, and balance.
