The ancient tea trees in Suoi Giang live at an altitude of 1,400 meters above sea level. Youngest ones are more than a hundred years old, while old trees are more than 300 years old. Young buds are still green on the rough, musty white tea stems of trees that are firmly rooted on the craggy mountainside, creating a unique sight of ancient tea farms.

Tea leaves and buds are picked and processed by the experienced and skillful hands of Mong people. The tea buds are covered with a light snowy white cover, so that is called "che tuyet” (snow tea).

Visitors can not only enjoy the ancient tea farms, but also experience various activities such as picking tea leaves, drying tea, and enjoying tea. "Visiting and directly seeing the old tea trees, climbing to the trees to pick some fresh tea buds, tasting and enjoying the sweet aftertaste of the tea, are among best things I’ve experienced ever," said Thu Thuy, a visior from Yen Bai city.

Visiting Suoi Giang, tourists can receive high-end accommodation and catering services right beside the ancient tea farms.
