About Vert du Vietnam:
Vert du Vietnam comes from the mountains of Thai Nguyen. The soil and climate of this region are ideal for producing flavorful, aromatic green teas. Vert du Vietnam is carefully crafted using a particular combination of pan-firing, rolling and oven-roasting to maintain a rich, jade color and a slender, twisted leaf.
Tea has been growing in northern Vietnam for over 2000 years. The hilly terrain is home to some of the oldest tea plants in existence. Teas made from these plants have a character all their own. Similar to China and Japan, Vietnam has a long developed tea aesthetic with social and spiritual connotations. The occasion, the guests and the setting determine which tea is prepared and how it is served. Gardens, poetry and ornamental tea pots are also an important part of Vietnam’s tea tradition.
Ingredients: Green Tea Leaves.
Golden infusion with a warm, roasted aroma and a smoky, nutty flavor.
