A unique new tea created by marrying Taiwanese black tea production techniques with the unique wild tea genetic stock of North Vietnam.
Tea seeds from wild growing tea trees were collected from various ethnic minority communities in the mountainous areas of of Yen Bai, Ha Giang in North Vietnam and were then planted in a high mountain Lam Dong tea estate. The resultant tea plants which have grown from the wild seeds, have now matured and were hand picked to produce this unique new tea, processed by Taiwanese tea experts with Taiwanese machinery in the Taiwanese black tea style to create a unique new tea.
The tea has a smooth taste with no bitterness or astringency, with notes of berries and malt.
