Malty with a slightly grassy flavour.
The most famous tea from Thai Nguyen is Tan Cuong Tea. This special product from Tan Cuong - Cong River area possesses an incredibly delicious taste that can mesmerize any tea drinkers including the most picky one. Each sip of hot Tan Cuong tea pouring in mouth firstly leaves a little taste of bitter on the tip of the tongue but that taste immediately transforms to a deep sweet when the tea is off throat.Most tea researchers agree that Thai Nguyen terrain and weather have significant impact on the high quality tea products here. Generally tea areas are located in valleys or on hills that are surrounded by high mountains around such as Tam Dao or Than Lan. These mountains shield extreme sunlight of summer as well as freezing winds of winter so environment at those farms is amazingly appropriate for growing tea with average temperature of 22 - 23o C during the year.
