THAI NGUYEN GREEN TEA

ORIGIN
Thái Nguyên is the most traditional and beloved tea in Vietnam as well as one of the most exported teas produced in the country. Its name comes from the tea region located in Thái Nguyên province in the East-northern part of the country about 80 km from Hanoi. Unique terrain, special climate, and chemistry of the soil create a special environment for growing the highest quality tea material. Our Thái Nguyên is the highest grade, which comes from the Tân Cương area famous for its excellent quality.

ORGANOLEPTIC
This tea has a sweet, herbal, and marine fragrance. The taste is smooth and tender with umami and salty nuances which bring associations of seaweed and grass. A little bitterness on the tip of the tongue immediately transforms into sweetness in the throat. The empty cup is full of sweet sugary fragrance. Long-lasting aftertaste with a little menthol sensation. The colour of the infusion is deep green with jade tones. Refreshing tea with its character and original flavour.
