Although Vietnam has one of the oldest tea cultures in Asia, Tea has only been seriously involved in the field of bulk teas since the early 1980s and has recently become a serious player in the European market. While in the north of the country high green tea has been produced at altitudes of up to 1,500 m for about 2000 years, mainly orthodox black tea "trà man" is produced in southern Vietnam, including the deep plains around Lam Dong and Thai Nguyen. At the origin, teas, generally known as "scented teas", are combined in Vietnam with the term "trà u'ó''h hu'o'ng". Mainly jasmine and lotus "trà sen" are offered. In the north, we still find frequent structures."Small holders", ie family farms with their own tea fields, but without their own production facilities, deliver the freshly picked foliage to a factory. Depending on the quantity and quality, they receive the appropriate fee. In Central and South Vietnam tea plants and factories in one hand are mostly tea gardens, such as India and Ceylon.
