The annual festival is being held to promote tea products and Dai Tu tea to customers and to systematically create the Dai Tu tea brand. It is also an opportunity for businesses in the locality to connect and exchange producing, processing and consuming experiences, according to Vice Chairman of Dai Tu’s People’s Committee, Le Thanh Son.

There were nearly 200 booths at the festival, with tea products and other products of the craft villages that locals had prepared for the Lunar New Year on display.

Dai Tu District is the largest district growing tea, with total area of more than 6,200ha and output of more than 57,000 tonnes of fresh tea buds per year, accounting for one-third of the province’s tea.

This is the fifth festival of its kind held in Thai Nguyen Province. The province, famous for its vast tea cultivation areas in Thai Nguyen City, Dong Hy District and Dai Tu District, is ranked second in the country’s tea output, following Central Highlands’ Lam Dong Province.
