Vietnam is an amazing place with its own unique rhythm and melody. Starting from noisy streets of big cities till wild jungles high in a mountain, this country is full of its own charm and kind people who are living their own unique life. We invite everyone to join us in our annual Vietnam Tea Tour to discover this beautiful culture.

We will see how tea leaves are being grown and processed, as well as harvest and produce our own tea. We will dive into noisy streets of colourful Hanoi city, travel through beautiful valleys of sunny Mộc Châu, dive deep into the jungle with ancient tea trees in foggy Hà Giang province, enjoy breath-taking views of Ha Long Bay during the best season when the weather is perfect and the nature is generous.
