OLD TREE SILVER NEEDLES | VIETNAM
We've been exploring countless Vietnamese tea samples this year. Among a pretty large bunch, these glorious, chunky silver needles stood out for Bailey.
Made with leaves from trees planted well before World War II, lovingly picked and slow dried in the shade, this naturally sweet tea is bursting with notes of orange blossom and boiled, sweet corn.
