Vietnam is usually overlooked in high-end tea circles, but Kilogram Buyer Doug Palas tasted a tea almost a decade ago that lead him to believe there are high quality teas coming of of Vietnam. After many years of tasting various teas from Vietnam, he came across this tea from the mountain Phan Xi Pan. It is a complex cup of fruit, malt, and floral flavors without a lingering astringency.
A delicious oolong tea from Thailand. Verging on the caramelization and malt of black tea, but with plenty of fruity backbone to make for a very complex cup. Good for 2-3 steeps. 1.75oz (50grams) per box.
This simple tea pot is perfect for brewing and viewing loose leaf tea. It is about 14oz and made of beautiful glass. The strainer is fixed in one position and holds back leaves as you pour tea out the spout. (Actual product no longer includes Kilogram branding)
