The article analyzed the added value received by the actors in the Thai Nguyen tea value chain based on the economic chain analysis method including calculation of input costs, added costs, added value, net added value, total profit and total income of each actor and of the entire chain. The results show that the distribution of value added and net added value among actors is uneven, in which farmers receive the largest net value and value added in the chain, but it is the largest effect in the chain. The farmer receives the lowest profit because the farmer’s investment cycle is the least. Based on the analysis results of the actual distribution of added value among the actors, the author proposes some solutions to improve the added value that each actor receives when participating in the Thai Nguyen tea value chain.
