Vietnam Nam Lanh Estate OP Organic Tea Description:
Nam Lanh Estate OP (Orange Pekoe) Organic comes from northern Vietnam close to Yunnan Province China. This excellent tea features a malty taste that’s a delicious way to start the morning. Given the proximity to the Yunnan province of China there is really little wonder that Vietnam can produce excellent teas with similar taste and aroma profiles. Nam Lanh Estate OP offers a malty taste with light astringency and acidity. The infused liquor is clear and bright with a bold copper color.
This tea is being replaced by High Mountain Snow Shan Black Tea (also from Vietnam).
