Vietnam is known as one of the oldest tea regions in the world, with a vast area of ancient tea trees spreading from northeast to northwest. Hà Giang province is located in the northeast part of Vietnam on the border with Yunnan province, China. This region is famous for its wild ancient trees grown here for hundreds and even thousands of years. Unique climate, high altitude, rich soil and high level of humidity create an excellent environment for tea trees to grow, what give this tea a particularly special character and taste. This is a homeland of different minorities like Vietnamese, H'Mông, Tay, Kinh, Nung, Dao and others, who traditionally use tea leaves as a medicine and take care about the tea trees.
Made from high-quality young spring buds harvested from 350-500 years old tea trees, this tea is unique due to its rareness. Harvested by the H'Mong minority high in the mountains at an altitude 1200+ meters and processed by a local tea master.
This tea is special and hard to describe. The dry tea leaves have a gentle aroma with notes of chocolate, nuts, and bakery. After rinsing, the fragrance develops into creamy, milky, and cacao tones. The taste is light, sweet, and creamy, with chocolate notes and fruity aftertaste. The oily texture and sweet light taste make this tea very intriguing.
