BLACK TEA: Wild Boar, Vietnam
Black tea, Vietnam
Flavour: cacao, malt, wood, dried fruit
Leaves for this tea are harvested from tea plants that grow wild on the mountain slopes of Van Chan District, Yen Bai province in Northern Vietnam. The trees grow at altitudes of 1300m and above.
Wild Boar infuses into a rich bronze liquor with a fascinating fragrance of dried tropical fruit. Medium bodied with notes of cacao, malt, wood and a mild astringency, this is a great tea to pair with food.
September 2020 harvest.
Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 100°. Two infusions.
Sizes: Wild Boar comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice.
