Our Honeybush tea is cultivated from seeds in our own nursery. After six months it is planted on southern slope farmlands to naturally grow until it is annually harvested after 2 years. The harvested Honeybush tea is taken to nearby processors in the Garden Route where the leaves and stalks are fermented into a dark orange-brown colour similar to Rooibos. Green (or unfermented) Honeybush tea are also produced at the processing plants. Our tea is then packaged in bulk bags or in tagless tea bags, sealed in silver pouches.
Our Honeybush tea is available in the following ranges:
- Bulk fermented loose leaf Honeybush tea sold per kg.
- Bulk green (or unfermented) loose leaf Honeybush tea sold per kg.
- Fermented Honeybush tagless tea bags sold per 50 gram and 100 gram retail carton.
- Green Honeybush tagless tea bags sold per 50 gram and 100 gram retail carton.
The Protea plant may appear over many areas south of the Limpopo. However, 92% of the species is only found in the Cape Floral Kingdom, in a narrow belt of mountain coastal land, stretching from Clanwilliam to Grahamstown. The extraordinary richness and diversity of these species of the Cape flora may be caused in part by diverse landscapes. Thus, populations may become isolated from each other and in time develop separate, individualistic characteristics. Proteas were recently and additionally imported to the Herold Meander, growing well, though there is a long wait for maturity and flowers to appear, but proteas may just become the crown of all beauty in this striking spot. By direct personal visit, leadership from the Herold Meander visited many selling points, for example in the Netherlands, and the market appears to be promising for exports.
