Peppermint Honeybush - Loose Leaf

Packaging Guide

A naturally sweet caffeine-free infusion, high in antioxidants and minerals. Made using Honeybush exclusively handpicked for us from wild bushes in the scenic Langkloof, Eastern Cape, it is dried naturally in the sun and special course cut for a full flavour. Blended with Moroccan peppermint and spearmint plus a hing of verbena. This is a full-bodied refreshing herbal tea with a spicy aroma and a hint of summer peaches.

  • Contains: 80g Loose leaf tea
  • Ingredients: Organic Honeybush herbal tea, Peppermint, Spearmint, Verbena
  • Origin: Produce of ore than one country
  • Taste: Smooth roasty flavours with hints of pepper and honeyed sweetness
      • Can be reinfused twice. Best appreciated without adding anything to it but extremely versatile and equally delicious with milk, or dash of honey - make much stronger if you drink with milk. Like Rooibos, Honeybush has no tannins and will not go bitter if left to infuse. This means you can keep on making multiple cups of the same tea leaves.

      • Tricky to cultivate, most Honeybush is still gathered wild on steep, south-facing mountain slopes. Because heavy-handed harvesting can kill the shrubs, we source from a farmer who ensures a sustainable way of cutting the wild plants, thus preserving the delicate mountain ecology.

        Winning 2 gold stars in the British Great Taste Awards 2011 and since then consistently voted the best Honeybush tea in its class, we are proud that our tea is now served in some of the world's most recognisable locations.
