A unique cooperation
Our Fin Ho business is specialized in ancient organic tea and is shaped from a unique cooperative formed by the Red Dzao people. Our Fin Ho cooperative was founded with the philosophy to bring our organic tea to everybody with a love for special made tea and by doing this improving the livelihood of the Red Dzao community and other ethnic minority tea producers in Vietnam.
Farming for generations
The Red Dzao community of Fin Ho consists currently of 45 families and they live in small and peaceful villages in the upper highlands of Ha Giang province. The Red Dzao is an ethnic minority group in Vietnam. Ha Giang province lies around 300 km from Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. Growing tea is part of life for the families and they learned how to grow, harvest and produce their precious tea from generation to generation. The Red Dzao people believe their tea is a precious natural medicine, as tea can be used as a way to detox; prevent heart diseases, arthritis and reduce risk of getting cancer.
Premium quality tea
Our tea is Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica, a broad leaf variety. The tea trees are over 100 years old and grow in healthy climatic conditions and in rich soil on the slopes of the mountain. These ancient tea fields lie at an altitude of 1.000 m and higher where the humidity and sun soften the leaves and increase the proportion of amino acids, polyphenols and antioxidants.The harvest takes place 3 - 4 times per year during which the tea is carefully handpicked and processed by the Red Dzao families. The time of harvest has a major influence on the characteristics of each batch. The first flush of spring provides the best tea of the year. Green tea, White tea, Red tea, and Black tea are all harvested from the same tree, but are processed differently to attain varying levels of oxidation.
Organic & Fair Trade
Fin Ho cooperates with the Red Dzao families to grow the best quality tea leafs and to harvest and process the tea efficiently with the guidance of Vietnamese and international expertise. Fin Ho tea meets global standard of Fair Trade and Organic certification; ensuring our love and respect for the Red Dzao community and our dedication to grow premium quality tea with unique flavours.View Organice certificate View Fair Trade permit
