Preserved, cared for and grown on mountains covered by cloud all year, the quality of Shan Tuyet Tea leaves are always pure and when used to make tea deliver a delicious fragrance, thanks to these features Shan Tuyet tea has been considered as characteristic of Cao Bo tea region.


Being recognised as a Vietnamese natural heritage contributes to protecting the genetic resources of the well-known tea variety. Meanwhile, the event offers a chance to honour and promote Ha Giang tea products to domestic and international visitors.
