Saylom Laos Organic
A really exciting Organic black tea from Laos. This deep malty tea has been grown in an area of ancient native teas that are believed to be some of the oldest in the world (Laos lies in the ‘Himalayan Corridor’, the region to which tea is indigenous). This project has been set up to support the Phunoi ethnic minority, providing them with a sustainable alternative to the former opium cultivation that was rife in the region. This tea should appeal to fans of Assam, with a similar depth and malty quality, but with subtle fruit notes. Strong enough to add milk.
