Made from the best hand-picked buds of high mountains old wild tea trees in Ha Giang, Vietnam, the tea master spends 2 months in the mountains during the tea harvesting session to make tea in a small hut he built. From tea picking to firing to rolling to packing, he handles the entire tea making process with his wife. The leaves are plucked from wild trees of the Assamica variety estimated to be hundreds of years old grown at 1800m-2200m. Sun-dried with no shaping, this tea style retains the enzymatic flavour notes of the terroir - soil, climate, wind, sun-facing, and the old tea trees. The tea master is skillful in preserving these notes without diverting from these characteristics through his processing.
We have been offering this tea for two years. This year's tea smells of flowers like red roses, is full of the sweetness of natural sugars. It has a thick and round mouthfeel and a lasting but mild aroma reflective of the age of the trees.
