Red Tea Vietnam Honggan is an exclusive tea from the newly started project of Moychay Vietnam. The tea was made from the leaves of ancient trees grown in the remote areas of North Vietnam in March 2023.

This exquisite tea is characterized by its dark, fermented leaves adorned with delicate buds. The tea has the name Honggan which means Oven dryed - tea leaves are set on perforated trays in an oven and hot air is circulated through the tea via convection at the final stage.

Red Tea Vietnam Honggan has a captivating aroma that combines the warm notes of vanilla with the enticing fragrance of linden honey. When brewed, Red Tea Vietnam Honggan reveals its true charm.

The first sip envelops your palate with a smooth, velvety texture, reminiscent of caramel. The tea's natural sweetness lingers on your taste buds, leaving behind a delightful aftertaste that is both gentle and lingering. There is also a subtle hint of licorice that adds a unique depth to the overall flavor profile.

This tea is a perfect companion for indulging in desserts or enjoying a soothing afternoon tea. It has the remarkable ability to uplift your mood and provide a sense of comfort and relaxation.

Whether you're seeking a moment of tranquility or a delightful treat, Red Tea Vietnam Honggan is a wonderful choice.
