|Vietnamese tea receives ‘Tea of the World’ awards
Among the winners of the Gourmet award were Shan Tuyet white tea of Tay Con Linh in Ha Giang province, in addition to Shan Tuyet tea of Pang Sung Do commune, Van Chan district, Yen Bai province.
The recipients of the gold awards include Shan Tuyet pink tea from Tay Cong Linh in Ha Giang, along with Oolong Moc Chau tea which originates from the northern mountainous province of Son La.

The AVPA Tea Contest is a unique competition which ranks beverages based on gastronomy rather than standardised refereeing. It therefore seeks a striking rather than a consensual sensory profile.
In this year’s version, the contest attracted 128 tea products from 17 countries worldwide.
By receiving international tea prizes, Vietnamese tea products will boost their prestige in the global market.
