Known as Heuningbos in Afrikaans, honeybush
got it’s name thanks to its bright yellow flowers
and their distinctly sweet honey aroma. 
The plant grows along the coast in the region just
south of Cedarberg. There is very limited commercial
cultivation of Honeybush, so harvest relies heavily on wild bushes.

To make honeybush tea, the flowers, leaves and soft stems are all cut and piled to ferment until the green colour changes to dark brown and exudes a sweet, honey-like scent.
