African Red Tea Imports Honeybush Tea Loose Leaves -- 1 lb
We love honeybush tea in our family. I personally prefer it to the rooibos tea because it is more mellow and soothing, without little fruity acidic kick that rooibus has (I dont like fruity teas) . The main reason I got this loose tea is to get away from using tea bags, and in addition it is less expensive than packaged tea.
It turned out to be not as strong as the some tea packets, I think about half as strong as the Numi tea bags (which are exceptionally flavorful) so I use about two heaping teaspoons to get my desired strength, but I still think it is more economical to get than Numi honeybush packets. Overall this tea is very good -- we can control the strength of our brews and dont have to unnecessarily brew paper. We are about finished with the first bag and I am getting another one.

Uses Twice as Much Tea
Uses Twice as Much Tea "Leaves" as Rooibos Tea. Taste Similarly as Rooibos. Quality and Taste are Excellent. I will continue to buy the African Red Rooibos in both Plain (unflavored) and Vanilla flavored but will not purchase this African Red Honeybush Tea again.
