Good Hope Spice Blend
Good Hope Spice Blend is mild and well-rounded with notes of wildflower honey, citrus, star anise and aromatic spices. The main ingredient is South African honeybush, which is grown along the Cape of Good Hope. It has a naturally occurring honey flavor, hence the name of the herb and the blend. Flowers, citrus, and spices including star anise give an array of tastes and aromas that combine in a satisfying and unique way.
Honeybush is the foundational ingredient of this blend. It’s still a relative newcomer to the herbal pantheon, and like Rooibos it is a native to and grown only in the country of South Africa. Honeybush is comparatively milder, sweeter, and aromatically reminiscent of maple, baked bread, and honey. But that’s just the foundation, and the other ingredients are what make this proprietary mixture exclusively Peet’s. Osmanthus and Linden flowers lend the cup a deliciously sweet fragrance and mouthfeel. Orange peel, Allspice, and Star Anise combine with a trio of additional ingredients to give the cup depth, complexity, and character.
