OUR HONEYBUSH

Rooted in ancient Khoisan wisdom

"Tea began as a medicine and grew into a beverage."

OKAKURA KAKUZŌ

 

Staying true to cultural traditions farming the all-natural way is part of what makes Bitou Honeybush Tea truly special. Diligent hands pass down the ancient herbal infusions from one generation to the next so that Bitou Honeybush Tea drinkers can reap the benefit of carefully guarded Khoisan secrets and traditions. 

 

Used for centuries as a healing herb by the Khoisan, honeybush is completely caffeine free, low in tannins, and rich in antioxidants, mangiferin and polyphenols, that can boost your body’s immune system while helping reduce inflammation. 

By leaving out the fermentation process, our tisane is richer in antioxidants than fermented honeybush teas, making it one of the healthiest herbal ‘green’ teas today.

Organic certification and a purpose-built, state-of-the-art tea processing facility mean you can enjoy Bitou Honeybush Tea with a clear environmental conscience.
