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.

An amazing experience from every point of view. Far from tourists you will explore and experience the real Vietnam and it's tea culture while at the same time you will have the chance to contribute and help in a really nice place with great people. Mr. Shan is a game changer on helping others and raising up a whole's society standards and way of living.

I had a really good time in Mr. Shan's tea farm, i stayed there for almost two weeks and i have enjoyed and learned a lot, i teached english to adults from Wednesday to Friday and to kids during the weekend, all these people are always grateful and happy to be helped. I expended my time here with volunteers, vietnamese students and Mr. Shan, who is a delightful person with many knowledge and very good philosophy.
We also visited very beautiful and not turistic places around the area that i will never forget.
The food was amazing and the tea super good 🤩
Thanks Mr. Shang
