Melmont Mountain Honeybush is a completely natural certified organic beverage i.e. it contains no contaminants, colourants, preservatives, other additives or chemical residues.

On the contrary, it exudes a unique fragrance and brews to a golden ruby colour.


With care, Mountain Honeybush regenerates within three years after harvesting.  In consequence, less than one third of the mountain yield is available for harvesting each year by rotation. 

A team of trained workers ascends the mountain once a week from spring to autumn (weather permitting) and systematically cuts earmarked Honeybush shoots.  Dry weather is a prerequisite.
