Only 50 available. Tea cigars are a labor of love for the Phou Noy minority women who carefully hand-pick the best leaves from ancient tea trees. The leaves are later pressed together with bamboo, which results in soft tasting notes. These tea cigars make unique gifts and/or a fun introduction to the world of Laotian tea.
