Western Cape Honeybush Tea Claimed

Leading producer of Honeybush tea

Westerrn Cape Honeybush Tea is a co-operative working to become the leading producer of Honeybush tea, and a fully vertical enterprise. At the point of start-up, the company will focus on second-level processing, which includes cutting, drying, fermentation. Once established, the aim is to integrate other segments of the supply chain (including commercial cultivation of Honeybush). The company has access to Honeybush plants that include Cyclopia intermedia (‘bergtee’) and Cyclopia Subternota (‘vleitee’) and will use components from these plants to product its tea.
