Honeybush Red Tea For A Healthier You

It seems there are as many red teas as there are shades of red.  There’s red tea from the Rooibus plant, cultivated in South Africa.  Some cultures call black tea red tea because of its crimson color.  There are also many kinds of Chinese red tea.  Similar in origin and location, Honeybush tea, another kind of red tea also from South Africa and harvested in the mountains of South Africa from the beautiful bright yellow flowers of the Cyclopia intermedia and subternata shrub.

Honeybush red tea is unique in its flavor as well as its health promoting properties.  It gets its name because it is mildly sweet and aromatic, like honey.  Like the Rooibus it can only be grown in the unique climate, soil and terrain of the part of the coast of South African surrounded by mountain ranges.  The tea can only be harvested in the earlier part of fall or the later part of spring, when the plant flowers.    

Like Rooibus red tea, Honeybush red tea is actually not a tea.  It is an herbal infusion or a tisane made from the flowers of a plant rather than its leaves.  As a result, honeybush red tea is not caffeinated making it a good choice for a soothing hot beverage before bedtime.  It’s also low in tannins, which gives some teas an astringent stronger flavor.

Honeybush red tea has a wealth of health promoting properties.  For one, Honeybush red tea contains a substance called Pinitol, similar to that found in pine trees.  Pinitol is a natural expectorant.  An expectorant is particularly valuable in treating chest congestion.  It helps loosen the mucus in the lungs, making it easier to expel, making your cough more productive, helping the immune system efficiently rid the body of the cause of the congestion.  Pinitol also acts as a bronchodilator that is key in relieving the symptoms of asthma.  Pinitol also lowers blood sugar making it a potentially significant treatment of Diabetes as it may increase the effects of insulin.

Other unique properties contained in Honeybush red tea are coumestans and.  These are classified as phytoestrogens and, like those found in soy, are plant compounds best known for easing the symptoms of menopause.

Honeybush red tea also contains xanthones which are powerful antioxidants and antiviral agents.  Xanthones also assist the immune system in fighting free radicals.  Free radicals are notorious for speeding the aging process and are known to contribute to cell mutation, which is a precursor to the formation of cancer cells.  If that weren’t enough of a reason to drink this wonderful red tea, xanthones are also anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal as well as anti-allergen.  

Honeybush red tea is a medicinal repository in a cup!  What could be better than to drink a cup of hot red tea with its mildly sweet and delicate flavor right before bed time, making it easy to slip into a peaceful sleep filled with wonderful dreams. Be sure to make this tea that packs a powerful “punch” of immunity-boosting properties a part of your daily healthy eating routine.
