Drinks Tea

Since long ago, tea has been planted in Viet Nam. Tea is dear to the Vietnamese people as coffee is to the European people.


     The provinces of Thai Nguyen, Tuyen Quang, Ha Giang, Yen Bai, and Lao Cai, are regions famous for their tea plant hills. There are ancient tea plants, 300 years old or older, with trucks of about 1m in diameter. To produce good tea, the tea planter must harvest their tea at just the right time; if he misses this favourable day, his tea leaves will be too old making the tea less palatable. After harvesting, the tealeaves are put through five steps: withering, crushing, keeping warm, drying over a fire, and selection.


     The tea industry of Viet Nam has produced many kinds of tea, such as green tea, black tea and scented teas (chrysanthemum, jasmine, lotus, etc.), for domestic use and exportation.
