From Camellia Sinensis

In Vietnam, in the north of Hanoi, most families own small tea gardens. Farmers in this poor, rural region have created groups whose members work together to produce each member’s tea. It is from this collective effort that this energizing tea emerges, with its sweet vegetal, slightly herbaceous, and smoky notes. Cultivated without the use of chemical pesticides. For lovers of robust teas.

Cuppa from earlier in the week.

At this point it’s somewhat hard to keep track, but I think this is the first green tea I’ve ever had from Vietnam? Definitely not the first in general though; I think I’ve had a good handful of Vietnamese oolong and black teas.

This one wasn’t overly for me; nothing particularly bad about it but just not flavours suited to my palate either. Mostly a smoked vegetal sort of profile; kind of asparagus and snap pea like? Not a ton of overall sweetness to this one. I bet it’s perfect for some people, it’s just that I’m not one of them. At least it was a freebie though, given to me by Camellia Sinensis with a previous order.


I also find Vietnamese greens kind of smoky (they are also not my favourite type of green).

I prepared this tea Gaiwan style and it was sweet with smoky notes. It is claimed to be cultivated without pesticides which is a good thing. It gets sweeter with multiple steeps and the smoky notes hand on throughout. A great green tea from Vietnam!
