Our Vietnamese Green is grown and processed by the female run Tan Huong Tea Cooperative in Thai Nguyen Province, Vietnam. Beth and Chris visited in April as the teas were being harvested and processed. Cupping Notes - Dry leaf: Single plucked leaves are dark emerald blue-green; long wiry twisted leaves. Wet leaf: Unfurled leaves appear less blue while still very dark green. Aroma is reminiscent of Bi Lo Chun. Liquor: Pale yellow-green, bright, vibrant color with no clouding. Cup Character: Obvious green tea, similar to Chinese green tea, with a typical vegetal profile; more specifically, mild asparagus with a hint of sweet pea on the front. Good lingering mouth feel. Unlike some green teas this gets milder as it cools and does not exhibit any bitter characteristics making it a good choice for iced green.
