Description

This Vietnamese Grand Cru is inspired by the production methods behind the Taiwanese Oolong Dong Fang Mei Ren, more commonly known as Oriental beauty. It is harvested at 1,200 metres above sea level along the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, in the Lai Chau province in Vietnam's north west. This highly rare Oolong is an original combination of Taiwanese tradition and the wealth of the Vietnamese soil.

Just like the Formosan Oriental Beauty, the leaves of this tea are nibbled by small tea jassids. The molecular structure of the leaf is affected by these bites, leading it to develop a strong, complex aromatic intensity. The best way to bring out this tea's potential is to follow the Gong Fu Cha preparation method.

A Grand Cru with a very smooth texture blending gourmet notes of honey, vanilla, coconut and frangipani flowers.
