Abstract Several Cyclopia species ( Cyclopia sessiliflora , Cyclopia longifolia , Cyclopia genistoides , Cyclopia intermedia , Cyclopia subternata and Cyclopia maculata ), used as honeybush herbal tea, were analyzed using descriptive sensory analysis in order to develop a generic honeybush sensory wheel. It was found that the “characteristic” sensory profile of honeybush could be described as “floral”, “sweet-associated”, “fruity”, “plant-like” and “woody” with a sweet taste and a slightly… Expand
