This rare Grand Cru is made in the Tay Con Linh mountain range. It is prepared by hand by the Dao people, and is known for its unique shape: branches of around ten centimetres are attached together using bamboo.
These spectacular tea leaves are gathered together in bundles and reveal vegetal, fruity, mineral and floral fragrances. A very rare tea.
This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
