This single estate organic green tea with extra long needles produces a complex range of flavours with no bitter tannins or caffeine. Unique to the Western Cape. Green rooibos is too plain rooibos as traditional green tea is to black tea…same plant but unfermented. This gem is not as sensitive to brewing as green tea is. Essential to stock for sophisticated green tea drinkers.
