Named after the misty village of Phin Ho where it is lovingly grown and hand-picked, this fresh and smoky green tea pairs beautifully with stir-fried dishes. With a cool climate year-round, Phin Ho is ideal for its specialty Shan Tuyết ("Snow Mountain") tea trees. Tea in Phin Ho is grown using natural methods, without the use of pesticides.

We love Phin Ho Forest because it tastes similar to Thai Nguyen (from northern Vietnamese mountains) which we have bought on trips to Hanoi. We are unable to buy Thai Nguyen in the US. Phin Ho Forest satisfies our craving for our favorite green tea from Vietnam. We enjoy it many mornings with our breakfast!
