Morning favourite cuppa

I bought this tea for my friend, who loves it so much it has become her favourite morning cuppa! And she is very fussy when it comes to her tea!!! I just bought her another while it is still in seasonal stock!!

Very tasty

I bought the tea as I wanted to try out more Australian products and for its antioxidant properties, but have been surprised by just how good it tastes. I'll be buying more in the future as it is now my favourite "green" tea.
