Customers always asked if we had something similar to an English Breakfast tea. Now we do! Our Vietnamese Mekong Breakfast is the perfect wake-up blend no matter where you happen to be. Rich and full bodied with a bit of smokiness, this delightful tea works well on its own or with milk.
Mekong Breakfast is a skillfully crafted blend of wild black teas from the high mountain provinces of Yên Bái, Hà Giang and Sơn La in northern Vietnam. It has added character and subtlety from the addition of a highly oxidized red oolong tea. The blend offers complex and complementary flavors we know you'll love.

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.
