Organic Farm Vang Vieng

Mulberry Tea

Mulberries are at the center of Vang Vieng Organic Farm’s operations.  We use the berries in our delicious shakes, pancakes, wine, stir-fries, tempura, and, of course, to make our Mulberry Green Tea.  Leaves & stalks from the mulberry trees are fed t0 our animals – silkworms love the leaves, while the goats that supply our milk, cheese & yogurt often feast on the stalks.  You can find all of these on our menu & for sale as well as at various establishments in Vang Vieng, Vientiane & Luang Prabang.

We use mulberry leaves mainly for making our celebrated Mulberry Green Tea.
