There are undergoing studies about both rooibos and honeybush herbal tea but not at the extend of the tea made from Camelia Sinensis that is "responsible" for the green tea, black tea, white tea and PuErh.
Even if more studies on humans are necessary there have been some promising results until now
Research supports that honeybush tea, one of the main components of this Loose Leaf blend, may help prevent, manage and treat type 2 diabetes. Test-tube and animal studies show it may help lower blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin secretion and promoting the regeneration of damaged pancreatic cells.
The level of fermentation has an impact on the antioxidant content depending on the fermentation process. For example, one study found that unfermented honeybush tea reduced total esophageal cancer size by 94%, compared with 74% observed with a fermented version. While research on the tea’s cancer-fighting properties is promising, human studies are needed.
