Tega and Tula is tea like, refreshing, and subtle, the perfect cup for a hot and humid day, especially if brewed over ice or made into a cold brew. As it cools a fragrance of light caramel and peaches comes through, something akin to a peach tarte tatin.

This coffee  is a great way to put a little spark in at the start of your day.
