Tan Huong

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTV-47

This Vietnamese green tea comes from a small farming cooperative in Thai Nguyen region (North of Hanoi) where tea production is run by women.

In these poor rural regions, families who own small tea gardens regroup their efforts to help each other. Ms. Hiep, head of the farming cooperative, coordinates everything to ensure good results.

Authentic and robust, the Tan Huong resembles a trip through the mountains of Vietnam. Grown without the use of chemical pesticides, it is as charmingly rustic, as the farmers who produce it.

Sweet vegetal aromas with subtle marine notes and a warm aftertaste, this tea will easily become one of your favourite daily brews.
