Vietnamese Black Tea



Vietnamese Black Tea

Yes, a Vietnamese Black Tea. When we decided to expand our teas into additional countries and regions, we looked to Vietnam since we heard so many good reports about the flavor, the aroma and everything we look for in a cup of tea ourselves. They are the 7th largest producer of tea in the world. Most tea drinkers never knew Vietnam even grew tea, let alone a major player, but they are. They produce some of the most delightful teas we have found and at very reasonable prices. This one could be one of your “regular”, daily teas.

We found this Vietnam OP tea to sit along side of our Ceylon, Indian, Sri Lanka and other black teas. As far as appearance and color are concerned, a thoroughly processed leaf tea from Vietnam does not differ at all from the far more popular sorts from China. In taste, however, it is far spicier. Not spicy like chile pepper spicy, just a brighter, more lively flavor when compared to your standard English Breakfast tea. This results from the particular fermentation and drying process. Therefore, the quality we offer may rather be compared to a Ceylonese highland type and is, thus, particularly interesting for tea drinkers who like a mild and, at the same time, fully aromatic tea.

Our first reaction to the aroma and taste was that it filled our senses with the fresh, boldness of a breakfast tea, but with an “everyday” kind of smoothness making this a tea we could drink all day.

We carry other Breakfast, Estate and Blended Black teas, so you can change up the subtle character of your morning cuppa.  Each have their own character, body, strength and feel.  Each have their own loyal following and many of our friends buy several so they can change up their mornings.  You might want to consider our Irish Breakfast, Scottish Breakfast, Canadian Breakfast or English Breakfast Teas, or our Kenilworth, or Pettiagalla Estate teas, or even our Castleton Estate Darjeeling.
