What is Honeybush?
Popular for decades in South Africa, this tea derives its name from the scent of it's beautiful yellow flowers and the taste of its tea. With a flavor of honey and apricots, this remarkable tasting tea can be improved only by adding the slightest touch of honey to accentuate its natural sweetness.
Traditional methods of making Honeybush involve four characteristic processing steps: harvesting, cutting, "fermentation" (oxidation) and drying.
It all starts with the herbs.
Celebration Herbals is dedicated to bringing you the best tasting teas, grown and processed as closed to "the way nature intended" as possible and never irradiated.
Our herbs are grown and harvested with the highest standards of quality control. You can trust our new special designations- certified organic, ethically wildcrafted, and pure quality.
We are committed to the environment. In this box you won't find any strings, tags, or staples in our chlorine free bags. In addition, our boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard. A resealable freshness bag is used to extend the quality and life of your tea.
We hope you enjoy the beneficial pleasure of drinking these teas as much as we have enjoyed blending, hand crafting and packaging them for you.
Good water is an essential part of brewing a great cup of tea. We recommend using spring or filtered water.
Be sure to relax! Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the clamness and ritual that surround it.
Preheat your teapot (or cup) with hot water so the tea will stay hot.
Heat your water until it is vigorously boiling, then let it cool slightly form the boiling point.
Use one tea bag per cup of tea. Pur hot water over teabags, cover and steep, stirring occasionally.
You will notice that many teas change taste dramatically as they steep longer and cool. Be sure to experiment and you may find more character in a specific tea than you ever envisioned.
