This is a rare wild-grown, green tea produced by Black H’mong families in Hà Giang Province, Vietnam at over 5,200 feet. It is different from other green teas in that it is fired and dried by hand in a wood-fired cast iron pan rather than a drum oven. It has a smoky aroma and earthy and woody notes reminiscent of the surrounding pine forest where it grows. Like other wild green teas, it is naturally sweet with little bitterness.

About Our Vietnamese Tea

Vietnamese tea trees are some of the oldest in the world. 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.

Tea brings you to places you haven't been

Right from the moment you open the bag and are greeted with tiny hairs covering the interior you know it's going to be good. The dry leaf is a mix of mainly curled and twisted leaves along with a few stems. A mixture of muted shades of green and those adorable silvery hairs. The dry aroma will whisk you away straight to Vietnam where you can taste their woks at work and the food they eat but all done subtly. The wet leaf aroma is much more in your face. Steamed asparagus, stone fruit, and a minerality that transfers to your palate as you smell it. The flavor is vegetal, steamed green beans, woody, green wood, and minerality that leaves you feeling slightly like you licked a rock.
