A tippy black, wild grown, whole leaf tea produced by Hmong and Dao tea farmers in the Vietnamese mountains of Hà Giang, more than 1000 meters above sea level. Hints of morello cherry add a slight sweetness to the tannins of this bold tea. A wild flavor tamed only by an experienced tea trekker.
Each cup invokes a scene of waiting for the first snow in the late fall or watching for deer in the morning as nonmigratory birds chirp in the crisp frosty air.
Ha Giang Che Den tea is sold in a 100g bag of loose leaf for $24.00.
