This sheng pu'er-style, sun-dried dark tea is produced in a village house workshop by Red Dao families in Vietnam's far northern Ha Giang Province. It is a warm, sweet and complex tea which provides a range of flavor sensations through successive steepings from fresh herbs and forest floor to sun-dried tomato and dried vegetables - including artichoke and red bell peppers. The leaves are harvested from 300 - 400-year-old wild tea trees that grow naturally in the forests across the mountainous terrain. Like pu'ers from Yunnan, China, this Vietnamese version will continue to ripen over years, developing complex characteristics.
