(€6.90 ανα 100 gr)
South-African honeybush tea with a mildly sweet taste of honey
Honeybush is indigenous to the cape of South Africa. It is used to make a beverage and as a medicinal tea, having a pleasant, mildly sweet taste and aroma, somewhat like honey.One of its early recognized benefits as a tea substitute is its lack of caffeine, which makes it especially suited for nighttime consumption and for those who experience nervousness and want to avoid ordinary tea. As a result, it had a reputation as a calming beverage, though it may not have any specific sedative properties.It also has a low content of tannins, so it doesn't make a highly astringent tea, which can be a problem with some grades of black or green tea or when ordinary tea is steeped too long. Also used in the treatment of menopausal symptoms and diabetes. Honeybush tea can be consumed daily, or can be rotated with other beverage teas, such as Rooibos and ordinary tea.For treatment of coughs, or as an aid in regulating blood sugar in diabetes, or to help reducing menopausal symptoms, drinking several cups per day is recommended.
Infusion 5-8', 1 teaspoon/cup.
