Honeybush Tea in Australia, With Love from SA
That's SA as in South Africa, not South Australia. Honeybush is native to that country at the southern tip of the great continent across the Indian Ocean from us. With a history involving both the British and the Dutch, South Africa has words from both languages and this one is a lovely, evocative name that gives a general idea of the nature of this tea.
Does Honeybush Tea Really Taste of Honey?
It is not exactly honey-like but has a full, smooth flavour not unlike its relative, rooibos tea(which translates as red bush). South Africa may not be one of the places we think of when naming tea-growing countries, but perhaps it is time for a reappraisal. With rooibos being better known, it can be a useful point of reference for honeybush, as it tastes broadly similar. If you like rooibos, you will probably like honeybush tea too. This is not one of the striking, love-it-or-hate-it varieties. It's an all rounder that anyone can confidently serve to the family at breakfast time or to a social group when it's their turn to host.

Honeybush tea is a comforting drink, with a gentle roasted aroma and a satisfying taste featuring a touch of natural sweetness. Drink it as it comes, with milk or maybe a slice of lemon. Some people love to use condensed or evaporated milk - that is popular in India, where they know a thing or two about tea and honeybush would lend itself perfectly to such a rich brew.
