Taster’s Review:

It’s been a while since I’ve had a cup of unflavored honeybush.  And as I sit here, sipping this, I am wondering why it has been so long?  This is delicious!

Unlike rooibos, which is also grown in South Africa, I really like the taste of unflavored honeybush.  It has a smooth taste with a slight earthy quality to it – not nearly as woody as rooibos tends to be – and a very pleasant honey-like sweetness.

It is called “honeybush” because its flower smells like honey.   And although it has that honey-like aroma and taste, it isn’t at all heavy or thick (or sticky!) like honey.  This is very light and refreshing.  And because it’s naturally caffeine free, it’s a great choice to drink any time of the day.

Another great way to enjoy unflavored honeybush is as an addition to a favorite tea.  It adds a little bit of sweetness and a little extra dimension to the flavor without adding calories.  And honeybush is loaded with antioxidants!

I prefer my unflavored honeybush to be organically grown (and yes, it does make a difference in flavor with honeybush and rooibos!) and that’s why I really like this Honey Bush from Indonique.  My kids love it too!
