HONEYBUSH TEA :CAFFEINE FREE · SOOTHING AND RELAXING · UNIQUELY FLAVOURFUL
Honeybush is indigenous to a small mountainous region in Southern Africa, where it has been hand gathered by the Khoi and San peoples for hundreds of years. The leguminous bush has a most attractive bright yellow flower that is heavily honey scented.
PREPARING A CUP OF TEA
We recommend that Honeybush tea be steeped or brewed for a minimum of 5 minutes to release the flavor and the valuable antioxidants and minerals.
Experts suggest that brewing Honeybush Tea for 10 minutes or longer will increase the antioxidant content of the tea by 30%. After this, the tea can be used immediately or stored.
It can be reheated or cooled without any effect, as the tea is very low in tannins and will thus not turn bitter as normal coffee and tea would.
Two Honeybush tea bags will make 1 liter of Honeybush tea that can be served hot. Three bags will make 1 liter of strong Honeybush that can be served cold or mixed with other drinks or foods.
PREPARING ICED HONEYBUSH
3 Honeybush teabags
100 to 200 gram sugar or honey depending on taste
25ml lemon juice
Prepare 1 liter of strong Honeybush by steeping 3 bags in 1 liter of boiling water for more than 10 minutes.
Sugar or honey can be added to the warm Honeybush if a sweetened iced tea is required.
Remove the teabags and allow it to cool down.
Add lemon juice.
Chill and serve with ice cubes, garnished with fruit slices and mint.
Will serve 8 glasses of 150 ml.
Honeybush tea can be prepared and served as any other tea, but it can also be used in many other applications.
It can be served with or with-out sugar, milk or cream, hot or iced, as a blended tea, or as the basis for a fruit punch or even a soup.
