If you are looking for a unique—and healthy—gift, online shops usually maintain a carefully curated collection of Vietnamese teas. These lovely teas, sourced from Sense Asia, are sometimes sold in sets that make the perfect gifts.
What are Sense Asia Teas?
All of the Sense Asia teas come directly to you from the farmers and harvesters who cultivated them in the humid, soil-rich land of Vietnam. You can feel good about your purchase, knowing that the farmers in Vietnam are directly supplying their products as part of an ethically sound business model.
Exploring the Vietnamese Tea Tradition
Never tried Vietnamese tea? The classic green tea is tart, with a rich aftertaste and a fragrant smell, but there are numerous varieties with hints of jasmine, ginger, and even artichoke flower. For tea connoisseurs, these gift sets are the perfect introduction to the teas from this part of the world.
Alternatively, for Vietnamese friends, you can offer them a taste of home. A sampler set makes it easy to try a variety of flavors in one convenient shipment.
What are Loose Leaf Teas?
For the uninitiated, loose leaf teas are simply delivered in their unpackaged form (i.e., not in bags). Loose leaf teas generally offer a richer, more nuanced flavor profile than the teas in pre-packaged bags.
And contrary to what you might expect, they are easy to prepare. Either purchase paper filters, or use an infuser or strainer. Many tea drinkers like to experiment by blending loose leaf teas or steeping them multiple times; you can experiment with your own blends of Vietnamese teas!
