Echinacea Honeybush, a Cold Season Staple

DSC_0357

 

The immune-boosting powers of Echinacea have been widely publicized.  We blend this dried herb into our South African Honeybush tea to make a delicious infusion with a sweet aroma and a straw-like flavor reminiscent of honey.  Honeybush is a red tea, or Rooibos tea that is healthful, strengthening, and full of Vitamin C, Iron, Potassium, Calcium, and Zinc.  It’s a great “go-to” tea for the common cold.

Here is a great tea blend that can be made as a cold/flu season remedy or preventative tonic: Use about a teaspoon of Echinacea honeybush.  Add a little Ginger tea and Lemon Myrtle, a pinch of cayenne pepper, a slice of lemon, and honey to sweeten to taste.
