African Sunset Honeybush
Our fresh tasting, caffeine-free organic honeybush (a sibling to rooibos tea, only sweeter), is combined with lemon myrtle, verbena, lime flower, citrus peel and flower petals. This tea is high in antioxidants and low in tannins. This specific tea is cultivated in in the Eastern Cape Region of South Africa.
The name suits this tea well, as it is one of my favorites to drink as the sun is setting and won’t keep you up. If you’re looking for something to settle the stomach, fight indigestion and flatulence, or reduce a fever, then one of the main ingredients in this tea, verbena, does just that! Verbena also acts like a stimulant for the skin.
One of the other ingredients, lemon myrtle, is a plant that is grown in the rainforest in Australia. Lemon myrtle contains a natural essential oil called citral, which exhibits sedative, antiviral and anti-fungal properties. Citral is known to protect against the common cold, bronchitis, influenza and indigestion. While lemon myrtle is not related to the lemon tree, it does have a refreshing and intense lemony flavor and smell!
Our last ingredient, lime flower blossom, is an internal stress-reducing herb known to reduce muscle tension.
