Enjoying tea in Tay Con Linh mountain

Tay Con Linh is a mountain range in the west of Ha Giang, spread over the districts of Hoang Su Phi and Vi Xuyen, the “domain” of Shan Tuyet Tay Con Linh tea, one of the most valuable local tea types and a treasure trove of healing properties.

Arriving to Ha Giang at the end of March, visitors from Ho Chi Minh City chose Maison Teahouse Homestay as a transit stop to move to other famous destinations such as Meo Vac or Dong Van. Pham Thi Minh Hai, director of Thanh Son Co., Ltd., the owner of the Maison brand, introduced Shan Tuyet Tay Con Linh, the hundred-year-old tea tree.

When the visitors returned to Ha Giang, Hai shared with VIR that local travel enterprises wish the province could become an attractive destination for domestic and foreign visitors, building on its unique tea products, delicious food, beautiful accommodation, dedicated service, and especially affordable prices.

To realise the dream, Thanh Son Co., Ltd. is gradually investing in facilities to build “Ha Giang tea culture space” that will include a closed tourism chain including picking tea, visiting production facilities, enjoying the taste of tea, and finally buying tea as a souvenir.

 

The following are images of visitors enjoying Shan Tuyet Tay Con Linh tea.
