Building a Ha Giang Shan Tuyet tea product value chain

Ha Giang is known as the key tea production region of Vietnam with a total area of more than 20,300 hectares, ranking third after Lam Dong and Thai Nguyen provinces. The Shan Tuyet tea area is estimated at more than 18,600 hectares, accounting for 90.28% of the province's tea area. Annually Ha Gaing harvests an output of over 55,000 tons of Shan Tuyet tea from nearly 14,000 hectares. In particular, the province has over 7,000 hectares of ancient Shan Tuyet tea trees of hundreds of years old or more. Typical examples include the ancient tea tree populations in Cao Bo commune (Vi Xuyen district), Nam Ty commune, Ho Thau commune (Hoang Su Phi district), Lung Phin commune (Dong Van district).

From 2019 to 2022, Ha Giang conducted studies on the conservation, exploitation and sustainable development of ancient Shan Tuyet tea trees, associated with the development of eco-tourism, experiential tourism, and community cultural tourism to increase value and create higher income for tea producers.

Accordingly, the province has promoted the development of eco-tourism, experiential tourism and community tourism and tried to attract investment in eco-tourism areas in the areas with ancient Shan Tuyet tea such as Hoang Su Phi, Xin Man, Vi Xuyen…

In 2022, the Vietnam Association for the Protection of Nature and Environment recognized 1,324 Vietnamese Heritage Tea Trees. So far, Ha Giang has had 1,629 heritage tea trees in the districts of Bac Quang, Quang Binh, Vi Xuyen, Hoang Su Phi, and Xin Man and becomes the locality with the largest number of Vietnamese Heritage Trees.

This has a particularly important meaning in preserving and developing rare tea varieties, which is an important premise for improving the economic value of tea and promoting the development of tourism to experience tea areas. Because these heritage trees all have unique cultural and historical values, associated with the lives of ethnic minorities living in the area.

In order to sustainably develop Shan Tuyet tea, Ha Giang has implemented specific policies to build an organic Shan Tuyet tea value chain from the viewpoint of: taking businesses as the subjects and farmer households participating in the value chain through linked chains, creating a closed cycle from production to processing and trading of products. This is a favorable condition for the value chain of Ha Giang Shan Tuyet tea products to develop, and affirm the potential, strengths, and brand of Ha Giang Shan Tuyet tea in domestic and foreign markets.
