A sweet floral scent curls its way through the house, welcoming guests. On the stovetop, the source of this olfactory treat simmers away; a pot of Honey Bush tea. Native to South Africa, this herbal tea carries a distinctly honey-ish floral aroma, with flavours of warm apricot jam on the palette and a clean sweet ending.
Rich in antioxidants, it has no caffeine and very low tannins so rather than adding bitterness, long simmering and steeping enrichen the flavour. And while it has traditionally been used to treat respiratory ailments, we suggest you simply use Honey Bush tea to treat yourself (and any guests that might arrive).
