Vietnam Yen Bai

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTB-41

This Yin Zhen (silver needle) style white tea comes from the Yen Bai province in Vietnam. The farmers in this region work meticulously to harvest the buds of the tea bushes, which are only sun-dried in the traditional way.

The fluffy quality of the long stems enhances the richness and texture of the tea. The smooth liquor is supported by a slightly sharper flavour contrast,  generous with notes of straw and ripe fruit (peach) making it sweet, smooth and refreshing.

A delicate tea and a pleasure to discover.
