Green Tea from Laos

My sister sent me a few packets of tea from her trip through Southeast Asia. This is my favourite so far (although I haven't tried all of them yet!) - a green tea from Laos. It had such pretty packaging, handmade, handpainted paper by the looks of it:

(love the smiley faces on the little printed label)

The tea inside is coarsely plucked, with quite a bit of stem, and seems to contain some jasmine blossoms as well. It certainly smells of jasmine. Most of the leaves are a medium olive-green, although some are darker.



The jasmine scent carries through to the flavour which is creamy, rich and thick, and surprisingly sweet. It's a very robust tea and stands up well to two long-ish (three minutes each) infusions, and you could probably do a third as well. Thanks little sis!

  1. I absolutely love green tea from Laos. One of my friends gave me some and it was among my favorite green teas that I've ever tried. The tea I tried was not Jasmine, but it also had stems and it looked very similar to what is pictured here. It was more greenish and less bluish (although it's hard to tell if that's just the lighting).

  2. I'm glad you have had a pleasant Laos tea experience too Alex! I wonder how easy it is to find outside of that country. I don't think Laos is much of an exporter?

    The leaves are a bit more green than they show up in that photo, but it is quite a dark tea, for a green!
