Vietnam Tea Culture and the History of Tea in Vietnam 

Tea growing in Vietnam began millennia ago. However, it wasn’t until the French conquest of the country during the 19th century that mass production and exportation started.

Vietnam Tea plantations eventually appeared across the landscape as Tea’s consumption slowly but surely became ingrained in the local culture. Today, now independent from France, Vietnam is the seventh-largest producer in the world. 

Vietnamese people tend to enjoy a cuppa first thing in the morning, as well as at Vietnamese Tea ceremonies for weddings and other events. It is served continuously throughout the day, especially at mealtimes.

While all varieties can be found in households, the most popular is, unquestionably, Vietnamese Green Tea, which accounts for an estimated 65% of sales. But what are the other types?
