The Natural Organic variety is described as having a smooth, delicate flavor with hints of malt and fresh herbal character, the company says. Raw Green Bush Tea are very low in tannins and also contain naturally occurring trace amounts of iron, magnesium, potassium, fluoride, manganese, zinc, calcium and vitamin C, the company says. The varieties are caffeine-free and made in South Africa. The teas are packaged in all-natural tea bags in a tin of 36 bags and are available for $10.
