Visit 400 Years Tea Plantation

Half DayTour

Overview

History shows that former Emperors from China had used these lands to grow green tea, where still today these trees keep producing quality ancestral tea leaves. The Chinese-style green tea of Phongsaly receives worldwide recognition for its high quality and superb taste. Tea leaves are picked by the Phou Noy minority women from tea trees up to 400 years old tea, standing 6 meters high with a stem up to 30 centimetres in diameter. These precious tea leaves are compressed in bamboo cylinders and sold in cigar-shaped tubes. In this wild tea grove fertilizers and chemicals have never been used. Drinking a daily cup keeps the body in good health, reduces fat and preserves a clear mind.

Visit 400 Years Tea Plantation
- Half Day
Today visit the famous 400-year-old tea plantation, located in the village of Ban Komaen (30 minutes south from Phongsaly.) According to some tea experts, this village has some of the oldest tea trees in the world. The large root system of the old trees extends deep into the mineral-rich soil and gives ‘Phongsaly Tea’ its specific aroma and taste.

The road to Ban Komaen passes through other tea plantations and offers stunning views of Phongsaly and surrounding mountains. In the village, a newly built tea-tasting shop serves some food and sells the 400-year-old tea. Have lunch there before heading back to Phongsaly. (L)
