Show Description

A relative newcomer to the international tea world, Vietnam Black brews a deep, dark mahogany color and is bold and robust on the palate. Flavor profile is woodsy with bright citrus notes and lingering malt qualities for a sweet, smooth finish. A solid, black tea that is quite enjoyable on its own but takes milk and sugar quite well. This tea may give Assam tea new competition for space on your counter!

Extra Info:

Primary production of the tea leaves is for green, oolong and white teas, and occasionally black, with green tea being the most popular variety enjoyed by the Vietnamese.

Tea is grown in over a half of Vietnam’s provinces but most productively in Lam Dong (in the Central Highlands), Thai Nguyen, Phu Tho, Tuyen Quang, Ha Giang (all in the Northeast), and Yen Bai (in the Northwest, where this tea originates), provinces. As the majority of Vietnam tea is produced in a relatively small area, comprising the most northerly provinces, there is nothing approaching the range of variety and styles of teas that are found in China.

Even so, differences in soil, terrain, elevation and processing practices still provide plenty of choice despite the absence of dramatic regional differences. The Central Highlands are known for their oolongs with Taiwanese production influences, whilst the Northwest is known for their wild tea plants that have been left to return to their natural growth state, the leaves of which are used to make green, black, white and dark teas. Green tea is typically produced in the Northeast provinces.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 5-7 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • Organic FBOP black tea from Nam Lanh, Vietnam

Origin:

Vietnam

A perfect black tea. Flavorful traditional tea taste but very smooth, nice full body, with no astringency at all.

I have ordered this multiple times and have finally admitted that I need the full pound! This is a beautiful, deep, smooth, and apricot-y black tea, comparable to a good Indian Assam. While I continue to try other single-origin blacks, this is what I happily come back to. Love that it's organic, for the tea garden workers as well as consumers.

This is a really nice black tea. Rich and smooth, malty more than sweet. I like it because it sits well and doesn't upset my stomach like many other black tea blends. It's lovely as a morning wake-me-up, with or without sweetener.

This is my favorite tea, and I have tried more than a few kinds of tea, most costing more. I brew it in a large Yeti container keeping the leaves in and don't drink it for a few hours after it is brewed; I drink it black with no sugar. To me, it has an an almost honey smell to it a very clean taste and a wonderful after taste. Even as I brew it, no issues with over-brewing or tannins. Just a wonderful tea.
