Can you think of anyone, or anything, that loves honey more than Winnie the Pooh? Didn’t think so. Winnie himself loved it so much it caused even himself to wonder. In the original book by A.A.Milne he sings,

Isn’t it funny,
How a bear likes honey?
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
I wonder why he does?

We have the answer. Which is: honey is one of Mother Nature’s finest delicacies? Succulent and sweet, honey has been used to flavor food and drink since at least the days of the Pharaohs. So it was only natural that the little bear would want to feast on the sticky treat as often as possible. It was also only natural that we would blend the all natural flavor of honey with a top quality Cederberg Rooibos. The combination of the herbal tea and the flavor of honey brews up a mellow cup with a sweet yet subtle finish - fresh chamomile in the blend also adds a layer of delicious honey-like tones. We’re certain that if Winnie the Pooh ever got his hands on a pot of this caffeine free delight he’d never let go. We’re certain you won’t either!
