While jasmine is traditionally blended with green tea, our grower in Yên Bái has added a unique twist: The base tea leaves are the same as our Six Borders Black, but they’ve been scented with fragrant jasmine blossoms. The result? An unforgettable, hard-to-find aroma and flavor that jasmine and black tea and enthusiasts will love!
Grown above 4,300 feet and harvested by a single family of H’mong farmers, this wild tea comes from the high mountain slopes of Yên Bái Province, Vietnam. The trees from which it is plucked are 300 – 400 years old.

About Our Vietnamese Tea
While tea farming in Vietnam has existed for hundreds of years, 20th century conflict badly harmed the industry and prevented it from reaching Western consumers. Only in the last generation has the political climate in Vietnam improved.
Our Vietnamese tea comes from wild trees growing in the pristine, ancient forests of the far northern provinces of Hà Giang and Yên Bái. The tea is grown on mountain sides at an altitude between 4,300 and 5,500 feet. Tended by families on small farms, each tea selection exudes superior character and is ethically and sustainably produced. Our wild Vietnamese teas are organically produced and comply with international standards.
