This is white tea from Nậm Ty village in Ha Giang province. In this village, located at an altitude of about 1000 meters above sea level, people of the Red Dao minority live and produce tea. Around the village, there are wild or feral tea trees. Old tea trees are registered and taken care of in every possible way; the oldest of them is more than 600 years old and has the first number in the register. Rooster offerings are made to this tree for good luck, and traditional scarves are hung on its branches for a short time, also for good luck. Our tea was picked not from this tree — only a handful of leaves was collected from it — but from the same grove and from old trees. It has a bright floral aroma, which is complemented by light notes of sun-withering and a hint of powdered sugar which is characteristic of many Snow Shan teas. Well, yes, old trees, mountain groves and tea producing minorities are standard for Snow Shan, the umbrella brand that covers tea from six provinces in Northwest Vietnam.
