Lotus Blossom Black Tea Description:

This long leaf black tea scented with the flower of Vietnam, Lotus, is a stunningly complex black tea. This excellent tea features a malty taste of the tea highlighted with the fragrance of the lotus blossom. The fragrance of the lotus blossom is infused in the tea as the leaves are dried. Much like the Chinese Jasmine Green, the tea leaves are layered with the fresh lotus flowers while it withering to ensure the tea absorbs the scent. The petals are removed but a few remain that are dried with the tea. The infused liquor is a deep red color.

Today tea is produced throughout the country though most production occurs in the southern part of the country. The government of Vietnam considers tea a strategic commodity and has supported the growth and development of the industry and many of the growers are small farmers throughout the country.
