This Grand Cru is made in Lai Châu, Vietnam. It is produced by Mister Nguyen using the renowned Taiwanese Jin Xuan cultivar. This tea resembles both black tea (leaf rolling) and oolong tea (in its oxidation, cultivar, and the final heating of its leaves).
This unique tea is half black tea, half oolong. It reveals powerful floral, fruity and honeyed fragrances, which melt into a smooth texture.
