Vietnamese Coffee Mini-Kit
It's back! This compact version of our popular Vietnamese Coffee Kit is perfect for friends, co-workers, clients, and anyone else who'd love a delicious gourmet coffee experience at a fabulous price. The kit contains a small-size can of sweetened condensed milk, a full-sized Phin filter, and one of our most popular coffees.
Legendee Gold is a coffee created in the style of the classic Legendee, but with a new approach to taste and balance. Characteristics of this new coffee include an incredible natural sweetness --many customers who regularly sweeten their coffee like this coffee unsweetened-- and an acidity and aroma more typical of fine Arabicas than the original Legendee blend.
The Legendee family is one of the world's most famous branded coffees, and we are the only authorized distributor in the USA.

Individual Dragonflower Gift

The ancient traditional craft of hand-sewing white (Silver Needle) tea leaves into decorative shapes originated in China but spread to Vietnam along with many other cultural artifacts. These tight spheres of premium white tea expand in hot water to reveal a beautiful and delicate flower, with a colorful blossom in the center. In Vietnam, these works of art are called Dragonflower Teas.
The Jasmine Phoenix Dragonflower contains a sunny orange Lily blossom with a cluster of real white Jasmine flowers extending upwards. The Silver Needle tea is delicate with a full flavor but no bitterness, and a gentle Jasmine scent from the flower. Each Jasmine Phoenix Dragonflower can brew 3 pots of tea, or about 16-20 cups of tea.
The pretty Water Lily is particularly charming, since it floats to the surface of your teapot before settling to the bottom, and then extends its delicate leaves to give the impression of a serene lilypad with a brightly-colored water lily in the center. Lightly scented with jasmine.
Available in your choice of golden organza pouch or silver origami butterfly box.

New! Take a journey through China's most famous tea regions, and taste the teas of the Emperors without paying an Emperor's ransom. We have found a delightful collection of Chinese whole leaf teas that are packaged in individual one-pot vacuum bags, delivering maximum freshness and enabling you to try the famous teas at an incredibly affordable price.
This collection includes one packet each of four varieties. Each tiny packet contains 6.6 grams of loose leaf tea, enough to brew a standard teapot, but - and here's an important bit - these teas are so potent and flavorful that you can brew them multiple times. In fact, this is how they are meant to be enjoyed, since each subsequent brewing presents a differently nuanced cup.
The collection comes with an insert explaining the history and brewing of these famous teas in greater detail.
In this collection:
- Westlake Tea, also called Longjing (Dragon Well) Tea:
Pan-fired green tea from the Zhenjiang Province (shown above right). Fragrant, sweet, and exceptionally smooth light green leaves.
Tie Quan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) Tea:
Oolong tea with a uniquely complex 8-step curing process. Jade variety, harvested in Autumn, with a floral scent.
Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) Tea:
Dark green-brown oolong tea from the Mount Wuyi region. Invigorating and intensely aromatic tea.
Biluochun (Startling Fragrance) Tea:
Tiny, delicate whole green tea leaves, named for the legend of a young girl who gathered the leaves and carried them in her bodice, only to be surprised when the warmth of her body released their unexpectedly robust fragrance.
- Pu-Erh (Yunnan, Nannon Mt.) Tea: Dried and rolled and then fermented by a separate process, Pu-Erh tea can vary tremendously in quality and taste. We have searched to find a ripened Pu-Erh that has a fascinating scent and rich, deep and pleasing cup taste.
OPTIONAL: Paper Tea Filters for Brewing Loose Leaf Tea:
Essentially make-your-own teabags, these Filters can brew one cup or an entire
pot with ease. Zero cleanup; no "escaped" leaves floating in your tea; allows
full leaf expansion for a top quality brew. Includes easy-to-follow instructions.
Perfect for those new to loose leaf tea.
