First Kiss is one of my favorite tea experiences of 2020. It is a lovingly made black tea, hand-picked from trees over 100 years old in the Ha Giang Province of northern Vietnam. The tea is clearly powerful and full of energy, steeping with a medium to heavy body. It has the most comfortable notes of chocolate and nut, with deep florals and an earthy (woody, not soil) backbone.
We have set aside some to age for a few years, but also have a couple of kilograms to sell now.
