A remarkable Vietnamese green tea whose leaves are picked with extraordinary care, has reserved a special place on our menu. It has a strong, vegetal and astringent infusion not unlike grilled asparagus. This tea is warm and comforting, and leaves the taste buds with hints of lightly roasted coffee bean and flower pollen. Sip it slowly to awaken a drifting mind.
This tea is excellent served hot or cold.
Thai Nguyen Ché Xanh is sold in a 100g packet for $24.00.
Ha Giang Ché Xanh
[ha jung chay zahn] Ancient Arbor
A traditionally processed green tea produced from 100-year-old tea trees by Dao tea farmers in the Vietnamese mountains of Hà Giang, more than 1000m above sea level. The age of the trees give a flavor unlike other green teas and radiates strength and ancient euphoria. The deep taste is most similar to other ancient tree teas such as Lao Shu Pu’er.
