Each spring, traditional artisans from the Thai Nguyen province in Vietnam hand harvest fresh lotus blossoms, which are blended with green tea leaves in an ancient scenting method to create our Lotus Green tea. Prepared in small batches, the unique essence of these spring harvested lotus blossoms is released and absorbed directly into the tea. To produce each kilo of our lotus green tea, the natural scenting method of one thousand lotus flowers is needed to complete this ancient process. The result is a longitudinally curled green leaf with a slightly sharp flavor similar to star anise, paired with a pleasant vanilla finish. It steeps a pale green liquor, with second and third servings leaving one's palate with the invigorating and floral sweetness of aromatic lotus blossoms.
