The green tea is grown in Vietnam, just next to the Chinese border. It is a small tea garden where tea is grown free from any chemicals and harsh pesticides. Although it is not certified as organic by any European institutions, it is grown according to these standards. Many small tea farmers simply choose to not go through the costly process of certification despite employing the best growing practices in their farms.
Picking: A bud and 2 young leaves. All Jasmine blossoms are removed from the tea
Flavour: a good balance between a sweet scent of jasmine, and the nutty taste of the green tea. Very floral tea that makes an exellent introduction to green teas.
