From Intaba Teas of Africa

For hundreds of years the honeybush plant (Cyclopia spp.) has grown wild in the mountainous regions of the Cape in South Africa and was brewed by the indigenous San people for its delicious taste and versatility. Intaba Teas of Africa has captured the ancient wisdome and heritage of the San to bring you Intaba Honeybush. Fragrant honeybush, pure and natural. Africa’s nectar in a cup.

I have no idea why I’m doing this….okay maybe I do, I’m just not sure about the wisdom of it. When I was reading up about honeybush tea a couple days ago I came across info that said that the British used to drink this as a tea substitute – complete with milk and sugar. Thus I felt compelled to add some milk to my honeybush and see if they were onto something – or just on something.

The colour the tea turned…I don’t even know what to call the colour. It’s a sort of pinkish, greyish, brown shade – very appetizing. D:

Fortunately, it tastes better than it looks. It reminds me of a very light black tea (maybe a Ceylon) with some berry flavour added to it. Not horrible, but it still pretty much killed the unique flavour that honeybush has. I think I’ll keep drinking it plain, thank you very much!

My lovely friend Walton brought this back from South Africa for me. It’s a delightful tea with a natural sweetness and a pleasant orangey tang. I enjoy it well steeped but if you give it a wee swish it tastes lovely and delicate. Very refreshing when cooled, but I like it right warm before my bed.
