É um prazer beber este chá, e sabendo que é cultivado utilizando-se as boas práticas agrícolas, o gosto é a dobrar. O preço até achei em conta, comparando com muitos chás que se compram e lojas pelo dobro do preço, estou satisfeito com a encomenda, e com certeza hei-de fazer mais, agora que já conheço o serviço desta empresa.
Este chá é muito saboroso, mais leve do que o rooibos "normal", aromático e delicioso com um pouco de mel.
Provar este Roiboos orgânico dá-lhe uma sensação de pureza, ao ponto de se imaginar a cheirar o cheiro da paisagem selvagens sul-africano...
