Vietnam is the world’s fifth largest exporter of tea, tea being one of the country’s main exports. Although the country produces both black and green tea, the Vietnamese drink primarily green tea. The quality of much of the tea varies in quality, and the country has been working on improving tea cultivation, processing, distribution, and marketing.
In northern Vietnam (bordering China's tea-growing Yunnan Province), tea is produced from both wild and cultivated tea plants. We're thrilled to add Vietnam Ban Lien Red to our tea wall! This premium tea meets all our strict standards for quality and purity, and yields a wonderfully smooth cup.
