Vang A Khua always checks the taste and quality of tea products carefully before they are classified and packaged.

Khua’s relatives are harvesting tea buds on ancient trees.


Khua and his wife put tea leaves on a pan and roast them on a wooden stove.

After being roasted, tea leaves are crumpled by hands many times.

Members of Khua’s family are packaging and labelling products.

The local authorities assigned Khua’s family to protect, care for and harvest the most ancient tea tree (more than 300 years old).
