One of the rarest teas in the world in terms of quantity produced, real lotus tea is made by only a few families on Hanoi’s famed West Lake. It takes an amazing 1500 large pink lotus flowers and incredible dexterity to scent just 1kg of old tree Shan Tuyet green tea.

This tea has a phenomenal and unique aroma derived from the stamens of the lotus flower, which is simultaneously reminiscent of vanilla, aniseed and sarsaparilla. The base material is excellent quality and has a refreshing astringency similar to some very young puerh teas. Sweet, spicy and complex – this for us is the high point of Asian scented teas.
