Where Honeybush comes from
Honeybush is often described as a cousin to Rooibos. Similarities include the fact that neither grow anywhere else in the World and both are caffeine-free.
Also a ‘wonder herb’, Honeybush grows only in the mountains north of South Africa's Cape of Good Hope and along the coast from Plettenberg Bay in the Western Cape to Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.
The use of Honeybush Tea (or Honigtee) was first documented in 1705. It has become a hugely popular herbal drink because of its sweet flavor and, like Rooibos, it is praised for its health benefits.
