It’s rare that we offer aromatized tea and we’re thrilled to have found this amazing one (and her lovely sister in our black tea section)! This tea is wild, organic and fair-trade made by Dao and H’mong ethic people who are faithful to their cultural traditions making tea as they have been for centuries. This is a very rare naturally aromatized tea made from delicious wild and organic green tea that grew at 1200 meters in Lao Cai near the Yunnan border. These Snow Mountain trees are between 3-5 meters high and grow in an ideal environment that is fresh, humid, misty and cloudy. Snow Mountain tea is Camellia sinensis var. Sinensis and the snow referes to this high elevation and to the white downy hairs on the young tender leaves.
This high quality tea was then elegantly hand-blended with sensual Ylang Ylang and Osmanthus flowers from a small garden in Dalat “the city of eternal Spring”.
This tea doesn’t contain any essential oils, artificial or “natural” aromas or flavors… just pure flowers and wild, organic green tea!
