About This Product

Wild Black makes an excellent breakfast tea due to its hearty, full bodied flavor. The leaves are harvested from old growth tea trees and processed at a small tea farmers’ cooperative in Ha Giang, Northern Vietnam. Old growth refers to tea leaves grown on wild growing tea trees rather than more shrub-like tea bushes. Wild Black features long, stylish leaves, well-crafted into a robust black tea.

Ingredients: Black tea leaves.
