This tea is grown at Boontai District in Phong Saly. The tea is planted on the farms and land owned by the Akha Mouchi, Khmu and Phu Noi peoples.
The tea is organic and natural and planted by the villagers and picked in the early morning and or late afternoon. The tea picked is the youngest tea chutes coming up at the top of the tea bush. The photo here is of a typical highland village in Phong Saly. Cleared areas or "swiddens" are fields that have been cleared for planting rice or maize. These highland fields are shifted every 5-8 years to allow the poor soils to regenerate naturally.
