Most of the teas are unsweetened, but if you need a bit of sugar, just add a bit of Tweefontein's homemade honey water to sweeten things up.

Tweefontein's pestos are a tradition that date back to the farm's early days. Arugula-walnut, basil-pine nut-pecorino and basil-walnut were offered this week. The packages may look small, but they're very concentrated, and each one can dress at least a pound of pasta. Tweefontein always has vegan pestos in addition to those made with cheese.
