Honeybush Sarsaparilla Herbal Tea

I love experimenting with new herbal teas.

I have no idea what I’m doing, I just buy loose leaf teas & herbs and try mixing a few together.

Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t.

This time, it did.

I recently bought some Honeybush tea from an herb shop nearby and hadn’t really experimented with it until recently when I was having a little bit of a sweet tooth after dinner. With the summer starting to end and temperatures dropping significantly after dark here in Colorado, some hot herbal tea sounded cozy.

And it was.


And here’s the recipe:

Honeybush Sarsaparilla Herbal Tea

  • 1-2 TBSP Honeybush loose leaf tea
  • 1-2 tsp Sarsaparilla root

Steep in boiling water for 5-7 minutes


  • 1 TBSP cocoa powder (for energy)
  • 1/2-1 tsp Valerian root (for sleep)



Here’s where you can buy honeybush, sarsaparillavalerian if you don’t have a local herb shop.

Here are some benefits of Sarsaparilla & Honeybush, if you’re curious. Also: Honeybush is very similar to Rooibos in taste & the fact that they aren’t technically a tea. They also are both caffeine free.
