Five Penny
Green tea, Vietnam

Citrus, vegetal, mineral ~ light-bodied
Five Penny is crafted from leaves of wild tea plants that grow in ancient forests on the misty mountain slopes Suoi Giang, Yen Bai Province, Northern Vietnam. It is harvested by ethnic minority H’Mong families, who hand-pluck the first bud and two leaves from each stem.

This wild, wiry tea releases a citrus fragrance when steeped. It is light in body with a refreshing bitterness and savoury notes of vegetable broth, herbs and gooseberry followed by a mineral aftertaste.

April 2021 harvest.


Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 85°. Three infusions.
