Thái Nguyên Fish Hook Green

This fantastic green tea from Vietnam is markedly different to its sister teas in Japan or China. One bud and one leaf are picked from wild-growing, traditional Thái Nguyên tea trees in Tân Cương and are then processed into this fast-brewing, savoury and aromatic green tea. The tea has a sweet, grassy, cốm (pan fried young sticky rice) flavour with a deep, floral aftertaste. The tea’s small, curled leaves form a fish hook shape which gives this tea its name – a very special version of a green tea that is so popular in Vietnam.
