Vietnam 'Dragon Cloud' Green Tea



A splendid Vietnamese green tea with cool minty tones  coupled with the powerful grassy strength of typical Vietnamese greens, very much living up to its rich pedigree.

Dragon Cloud is a great example of the tea experimentation currently ongoing within Vietnam, it is a hybridisation of the native Vietnamese tea cultivar 'Ta' (meaning 'our' in Vietnamese) and the famed Chinese cultivar 'Long Jing' used in the production of Dragon Well.
