This dark tea, known as Pho Ni in Vietnam, comes from Tay Con Linh in the Ha Giang region. It is produced from wild Shan Tuyet tea plants (also known as "Snow Shan Tea"). These ancient trees are scattered across the mountains, and don4t need any maintenance in order to grow. However, to harvest the leaves the pickers still need to climb these towering trees, which makes the harvest much more difficult.

Thanks to their highly developed system of roots, these wild trees draw many minerals from the soil, which provides the tea with a richly complex taste.

This Grand Cru is a dark Sheng tea, which is a tea with compressed leaves that are left to ferment naturally over decades.

This highly fruity and vegetal tea then develops more woody and mineral notes with leather and mushroom hints. A round, sweet and complex tea that is ideal for preparation in the Gong Fu Cha tea method.

This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
