The Experience

Ha Giang is considered as homeland of Snow Shan tea where the tea plant has its origins. In here, there are still many mountains where tea grows "wild" and is harvested by the local people. Ancient organic Shan tea mountains in Ha Giang are owned by the Red Yao, Tay, H'mong tribes. These tribes live in small and peaceful villages in the upper mountains; harvest and produce their precious tea from generation to generation.

Ha Giang Tea House is a very unique experience, a quirky magical place, with a giant teapot out the front, and many interesting characters inside, everything infused with the good smell of tea and the taste of peacefulness. We did tea picking, built a bamboo pen for the piglets, taught English to the local children, went on beautiful hikes and excursions, rode motorbikes, cooked, did yoga... it is place where your many talents will be appreciated. And spent many nights drinking tea and playing card games :) Many volunteers and staff to spend time and socialize with.

It is an amazing place to volunteer! The people and the kids are kind and generous. I taught just a bit of english and in exchange I got such a great experience, delicious food and friends for life. Love this place!
