Honeybush Tea Story

Honeybush has been wild harvested and used by the indigenous people of the Cape for centuries, forming an essential part of their medicine cabinet. After the settlers came to the Cape, Honeybush was documented for the first time in 1705 and by the 1800’s it was widely used by the colonists as a restorative drink. As it became popular and the demand grew, commercial plantations were established and the first commercially grown honeybush was harvested in 1996. Today, more than 100 hectares of Honeybush tea is harvested from commercial plantations in the Cape Fynbos region.
