Flavor Profile: tropical fruit, dewy sweetness, lightly smokey, touch of savoriness
Production Area: Tà Xùa, Sơn La, Việt Nam
Harvest: April 2023
Drawing from multiple generations of tea making experience in the family, our Misty Highland Green is a wood-fired green tea handcrafted by a young H’mong producer. Fresh leaves are first harvested from wild tea trees then pan-fired entirely by hand for about 2 hours.
The tea exudes a subtle smokiness, bouquet of fruitiness, balanced with savory undertones and a lasting sweetness– a departure from the vegetal and assertive profile of a classic Thái Nguyên green tea. Take a moment to notice the beautiful wiry leaves. Its fruitiness, softly balanced with savory undertone, and a gentle smokiness that emerges from the cup.
Available in 1, 2, and 4 ounce bags.

This is a great green tea with a soft, seductive, smoky edge to it, and an extra layer of sweet-sour-astringency I only taste in Vietnamese teas. I love it!
This tea is a perfect blend of the natural vegetal flavors common in green tea with a hint of smokiness. Many smoked teas have a flavor that overpowers the basic flavor of the tea to the point that all you can taste is the smoke. This tea allows both the natural flavors of the green tea to blend perfectly with a hint of smoke that makes it an appealing afternoon tea on cold winter days. Highly recommended!
