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. The unique climate, high altitude, rich soil, and high level of humidity create an excellent environment for tea trees to grow, which gives 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 medicine and take care of the tea trees.
Made from high-quality spring material harvested from 500+ years old tea trees, this tea is unique due to its rareness. Harvested by the H'Mong minority high in a mountain at an altitude of about 1500 meters and processed by an experienced tea master, this tea represents authentic wild red tea with special aroma, taste, and energy.
This one is serious adult tea for those who are looking for some old tea tree taste. Dry tea leaves smell sweet, with notes of chocolate, bakery, and raisin. After rinsing aroma develops into gingerbread and baked fruits with some citrus hint in the end. The taste is sweet, soft, and thick with a deep woody character. There is a little bitterness of dark chocolate and coffee notes in the background. Speaking about energy, even after two years this tea is still powerful and needs more time to rest and calm down. This red tea is different compared with common red tea made from plantation material and quite strong.
