Made with Shan Tuyết ("Snow Mountain"), or leaves from ancient tea trees, and oxidized to about 80%, this black tea produces tantalizing notes of cocoa and sweet fruit. It is one of the most popular in Phin Ho Village, where it is grown and hand-picked by Dao people. We recommend enjoying it in a glass or light-colored cup to fully appreciate its beautiful copper-mahogany color.

Caramel Red

Great tasting tea. I like to have it in the morning with a splash of milk. It’s also very nice neat. Highly recommend this tea for tea lovers.

Robust and Charming

This tea — indeed, a beautiful mahogany — is notable for pairing a bold oak/smoke body with a comparably dark stone fruit profile I likened to cherry or apricot. A light, dry mouthfeel lent itself well to a mid-morning pick up for me at work.

Additionally, I found it intriguing to taste Caramel Red and Signature Breakfast in comparison, pondering their differences in flavor and color — perhaps, owing to differing dates of harvest?

Caramel Red

I spent about 30 min smelling and resmelling all tea options and decided on caramel red. I wanted something deep and strong for early mornings. It was exactly that.
