The Black Fairy tea is from the north of Vietnam and comes from very old tea trees. This location and the special processing makes for an exceptional tea with a special chocolate taste with hints of forest fruits and sweet, honey like notes. It is exceptionally smooth. The name "Fairy tea" stems from the legend of local people in Ha Giang. They believe that only fairies can pick the tea buds of the oldest wild tea trees deep into the forest of the high Chieu Lau Thi mountain (2000-2400m). For your information, those leaves are even more qualified than Shan tea - which are wild tea as well but from lower height (average 1200m). The oldest wild leaves are picked during a couple of weeks in spring only and are delivered to the workshop of Mr. Menh - whom we represent in Europe - to make Grand Cru, such as Dragon Scales and Fairy Black tea. We are delighted to add another true artisan's tea to our selection of the world's very best.
