This Grand Cru comes from the mountains of Moc Chau in the north of Vietnam. Harvested 2016, it has been carefully preserved by the producer who has roasted it several times to bring out an aromatic profile with a rare complexity. A true work of art!
A characterful roasted green tea which develops powerful woody notes, with hints of yellow fruits and spices, supported by a delicate final astringency.
