I'm not sure if honeybush is considered a type of rooibos - as best I can tell, its a separate entity entirely, though it does share some characteristics and is from the same general area of South Africa.

Reading your review from the other day has certainly piqued my interest in it, though... I'll have to get some more of that and try it myself!

Honeybush is a completly different plant but most websites that have it group it along with rooibos too. I think its more of an origin thing than what it really is. I have this tea to sample, I think i'll try some right now.

Apart from rooibos and honeybush, Africa has some really good tea especially from the Kenya estate. Most of the actual tea from Africa goes into teabags but some of it comes out pretty high quality.

Rooibos and Honeybush are related, but not extremely closely, same family, different genus.

Yup, they're both legumes, like beans, clover, and locust trees.

From what I've read, honeybush has a similar chemical makeup to rooibos and there's some evidence that the two plants have similar health effects, but honeybush has been studied much less than rooibos (which has been studied much less than tea).

I personally think it makes sense to discuss them in the same forum though!
