Top five tea specialties of Vietnam
The Vietnam Record Organisation recently published the list of 50 gift
specialties nominated by localities, tourism agencies, domestic and
foreign tourists. According to the Hanoitimes online, top five tea
specialties are included in the list.
1. Thai Nguyen tea:
Northern Thai Nguyen province is a cradle of Vietnamese tea. The most
famous tea from Thai Nguyen is Tan Cuong tea, whose incredibly delicious
taste can bewitch any drinkers. A bitter taste comes to the drinkers
when making the first sip of a cup of hot Tan Cuong tea and then it
turns out to be a lasting sweet.
2. Bitter tea is
cultivated in Thach An and Ha Lang districts, the northern province of
Cao Bang. The tea is used for the treatment of cold, headache, eye, nose
and throat inflammations, diarrhoea, and other ailments. It also
reduces cholesterol level, blood tension, stress, infections and weight
3. Vang tea: Vang trees are present in Cam Lo and La
Vang, central Quang Tri province. Vang tea is a famous medicine for
those suffering from digestion disorder and rheumatism.
Loc tea: En route to Da Lat, passing Bao Loc town in Lam Dong province,
tourists will catch sight of immense green tea farms. Bao Loc tea is
mellow and fragrant.
5. San Tuyet tea: Situated at an
altitude of nearly 1,400 meters above sea level, through the winding but
fascinating road, Suoi Giang (Van Chan district, northern mountainous
Yen Bai province) appears in front of visitors. It is where the oldest
tea trees in Vietnam are found.-VNA
