Waikato Gardens Black Tea
A visually beautiful tea with flowers & orange peel, just like the Waikato cottage gardens.
Tea plants can grow in New Zealand but the Waikato terrior & enviromental conditions are the most perfect. So plant camellia sinensis tea plants and watch them grow. It will take three years for your first harvest.
