What’s Special About Argentinian Tea?

Tea from Argentina has a clear red amber liquor, neutral taste with a balance of astringency. It is recognised worldwide for having excellent clarity when iced, for its high content of polyphenols, for its colour and for its mildness.
While most tea from Argentina is exported to the US, it also finds a home in Latin America, Europe and the Middle East among others.
