TUA CHUA-LAI CHA, FOP, Vietnam – Organic

Categories: , ,


“Tua Chua-Lai Chau”
This rare and distinguished tea originates from the leaves of the ancient “Tuyet San” tea trees, flourishing at altitudes of approximately 1,500 meters in the mountainous regions of northern Vietnam.
These trees, reaching heights of up to 10 meters, thrive in an environment blanketed by thick clouds, creating practically ideal growing conditions and ensuring a constant, exceptionally high quality.

Flavour Profile:

  • Distinctive Smoky Green Leaves: The leaves of this rare gem are beautifully curled, presenting a smoky green hue that reflects the unique terroir of its mountainous origin. The meticulous cultivation and harvesting from the old “Tuyet San” tea trees contribute to the tea’s exceptional character.
  • Olive-Green Infusion: Once brewed, the olive-green leaves unfurl, revealing the careful processing of the whole leaf. This visual display is a testament to the dedication to preserving the tea’s integrity from harvest to cup.
  • Full, Slightly Sweet Taste with Fresh Grass-Like Notes: The golden-colored cup unveils a full-bodied, slightly sweet taste that delights the palate. A fresh, grass-like note further enhances the overall flavor profile, creating a harmonious and invigorating tea experience.

This green tea captivates not only with its visual allure but also with a taste that embodies the essence of its origin. The careful processing, coupled with the ideal growing conditions, results in a tea of exceptional quality and character.
