This black tea comes from the state of Shan in northern Myanmar (formerly Burma). It is harvested in the Namhsan mountains. Made from Camellia Sinensis tea plants, this tea has undergone all the production stages of a classic black tea: withering, rolling, oxidation and drying.
A creamy and sweet black tea that is slightly acid. Its notes are woody, fruity (cooked apples), spicy and subtly vanilla-scented. A rare tea indeed! This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
