It is actually a very good herb tea to drink in the summer as it has this sort of menthol like flavor and aroma that makes you feel cool all over. Honeybush herb grows on the actual Honeybush in African mountains.
It is harvested and ground into an herb tea and used worldwide. From the Honeybush it gets its name because the aroma of the flowers is a honey like scent.

Like all teas, each cup contains healthy anti-oxidants. It also contains healthy minerals such as: Calcium, Copper, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc. Every one of us can use more of those types of minerals in our bodies these days. The food you eat now as well as the ground it is grown in is mineral deficient and if you are not using herbs or supplements then you are mineral and vitamin deficient as well. Deficient in these minerals as well as vitamins are why you get ill during strange seasons.
It is also why you stay ill or are getting ill more than usual. Honeybush herb tea drank in just a few cups a day can increase your immune system.

Think of a warm tea, that has its own sweetness to it, no sugar or honey is needed.
It has a sweet, slightly menthol taste to it. Very mild and easy to drink, it’s one of those teas that you could drink all the time and probably never get tired of. Although I prefer my teas warm or hot and slightly sweetened either naturally or with honey, this tea would be good as an iced tea too. There is a hint of red tea flavor, if you have ever drunk a cup of Rooibos you know what I mean. Although this tea is not listed as a Rooibos tea, it does come from the same region as the red teas.
