Yen Bai hosts first Shan Tuyet Tea Festival

A festival to promote Shan Tuyet, a specialty tea of the northern mountainous region, opens today in Van Chan district of Yen Bai province. A wide range of activities are due to get underway, including a photo exhibition on the northern mountainous region, along with cultural performances from local ethnic minority groups.

The highlight of the event is a trade fair with 100 booths, displaying One Commune One Product (OCOP) products such as Shan Tuyet tea. A ceremony will be held to honour Shan Tuyet tea trees in Suoi Giang commune, Van Chan district, which were recognised as Vietnam Heritage Trees.

Craftsmen will introduce tea making and tea ceremony, while the organisers will hold an auction on tea products, with the ultimate aim of promoting specialties to visitors.

The event will take place as part of the Muong Lo culture and tourism festival and the cultural festival of ethnic minorities in Yen Bai province in 2023.
