About us

 

The Singing Bird Tea Company is a small, independent company based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam with a small distribution office in the UK.

The company was founded in 2013 by Robert Harding after travelling to the tea estates and gardens of India, China and Vietnam. After further travel into other tea areas: Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Thailand and Myanmar, Singing Bird Tea went online.

Tea is currently a drink overshadowed in many countries by coffee and alcohol. Tea is grown in many different environments and often with great care. Tea also has great qualities of reviving, calming and providing general wellbeing. Tea contains calcium, phosphorus, iron, sodium potassium and vitamins A, B1, B2, Niacin and C.

Many countries go the tea bag route for their tea combining low-grade strong black tea with milk and sugar. But there are other teas that work very well loose and without milk or sugar. Tenders of these higher grade teas do everything they can to allow this tea to be the best it can be.

Although people in the west drink 4, 5 or 6 cups of tea a day it is mainly only the one type, industrial grade black dust sealed into teabags.

Tea can be bought very cheaply at a couple of dollars a kilo or for hundreds of dollars. The cost depends on the type of tea plant cultivar, when and how it is picked, the climate, altitude, soil quality and the crafting process.

In Vietnam the oldest trees are the Shan Tuyet trees in the Hoang Lien Son mountain range close to the border with China. The oldest is estimated at over 800 years old. There is a story about a group of travellers who, tired from their journey, decided to rest in the shade of these ancient trees. After resting they picked the tea leaves to make a pot of refreshing green tea. After drinking it the sound of the surrounding birds seemed altogether sweeter.

The Singing Bird tea Company offers a small selection of fine quality teas from Vietnam’s tea fields and gardens including rare tea hand-picked from the wild trees of the north.
