This tea comes from Myanmar (formerly Burma). It is harvested in the Namhsan mountains in the Shan region of the country’s North-East. The leaves have undergone all the production stages of green tea: light withering followed by high-temperature fixation to stop oxidation then a final drying. It is made from Camellia Sinensis tea plants.
A creamy and sweet green tea that is slightly bitter. It is characterised by its vegetal, mineral and iodine notes, with nuances of leather. This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
