£5.98

PROFILE: HERBS, FOREST FLOOR, DRIED VEGETABLES, SPICE, WARM, COMPLEX, SHENG-STYLE

ORIGIN: THUONG SON, HA GIANG,VIETNAM

HARVEST: OCTOBER 2018

A rustic sheng style sun-dried dark tea produced in a village house workshop by Red Dao families. A warm, sweet and complex tea which is smooth in the mouth and through successive steepings provides a range of flavour sensations ranging from fresh herbs and forest floor through to sun-dried tomato and dried vegetables including artichoke and red bell peppers. There is also a little background spice going on to round the experience off.


Tea leaves are harvested from big leaf wild trees that grow naturally in the forests that spread across the mountainous terrain. The majority of tea from the Thuong Son district is processed as mao cha and sold to Chinese traders across the border. We are very pleased to offer Water Genie under its authentic Vietnam origin.

Harvested tea is collected from the surrounding mountains following which it is sorted, gently pan-dried, lightly rolled and left to dry in the sun until ready.
