Review of Vietnam Kim Tuyen Organic (No. 874)

8 of 104 of 53 of 578 of 100

One-litre pot at home, made from small, sapphire grey and dark brown curly organic leaves. Pours clear dark copper brown (against white china) with no sediment. Deep aroma of leaves, with pronounced malty touches. Bitter, but not aggressive, flavour of black tea leaves, with malty notes and spicy hints. Astringent palate with a leafy and spicy aftertaste. Well-balanced and tasty. A really nice black tea. Reasonable price (€7.20 per 100 g).

This looks like the type of tea I would really love. I find these higher-end Vietnam teas hard to source, and I wish more companies sold them. Unfortunately TeaGschwendner's prices in the US are astronomical, 2-4 times the price for the same teas in stores in the EU. I am unlikely to buy from them until I visit Europe again, but if I did, this is exactly the sort of tea I would seek out from them. I still don't understand why their US prices are so high. It's the same whether you go mail-order or in the store.
