"Golden Lily" Kim Tuyen Oolong Tea (Vietnam 🇻🇳)


Sitting at the top of one of Vietnam's tallest mountains, a young disciple sipped from his cup. Taken aback by the pleasant taste and warmth of the brew, he exclaimed: – "Master, what is this tea?!"

Wise Lao Cha, stroking his beard, replied: – "Imagine young sprout, a tea leaf leaping from the mountain, landing in our pot. It sings of the earth's sweet whispers and dances like fruit in the wind, with a roast as round as the full moon. This is our Oolong."

Wen's brow lifted. – "So, I'm tasting the mountain's serenade?"

– "Yes", – chuckled Lao Cha, – "and it seems the mountain has quite the sense of rhythm."


We present an exotic addition to our Oolong tea collection - the "Golden Lily" Vietnamese Oolong. Nestled in the Hoàng Liên Sơn mountains of Việt Nam, this high-mountain Oolong tea thrives at an altitude of 1200m. These heights, part of Vietnam's tallest mountain range, are where the Jin Xuan varietal, locally known as Kim Tuyên, has found a home amidst the area's wild varietal tea trees and fertile soil. Indeed, the soil is among the region's treasures.

Making the Kim Tuyên Oolong follows the traditional Oolong production process, infusing our tea with a complex array of flavors. As you brew this Oolong, expect to be greeted with an aroma reminiscent of freshly baked goods straight from the oven. Pour a cup, and you'll discover a taste profile that marries notes of vanilla with the sweetness of tropical fruits, underscored by a deep and well-rounded roast.

This tea speaks of its origin – of soil kept clean and lush by organic farming practices and homemade organic fertilizers. It's a tea that's as honest and genuine as the land it comes from and the people who tend to it.

Our Kim Tuyên Vietnamese Oolong is a tea that celebrates the unique terroir of Vietnam's high mountainous tea gardens. The high-altitude origin and the rich, unpolluted soils of Tâm Đường, combined with pristine surroundings and organic practices, turn this tea into an experience that connects you with its landscape – a place where traditional methods meet a commitment to purity and quality. It's crafted for those who appreciate the serene complexity of a good Oolong and the focused calm that Gong Fu Cha brings.
