Thailand is a relative newcomer to the world of tea production but due to the use of fine Taiwanese tea stock and expertise is making big waves in the high-quality tea market. This speciality from organic cultivation comes from the northern Province of Chiang Rai. Ancient trees surround the tea fields and constant rainfalls, as well as warm temperatures, offer the best preconditions for the cultivation of this rarity. The name of the used tea shrub, which gives the tea its special, unique character, is ‘Jing Xuan’. The freshly plucked leaves are spread under an outside roof to wither and start to ferment for 18 hours. Then, the tea is rolled and fermented for another 4-5 hours. After the drying, the ‘Hong Cha’ can finally demonstrate its exceptional shape: a very nicely formed, long twisted and ebony-coloured leaf. The infusion has a fruity, caramel-like bouquet with a cup that shines in amber tones. It is very aromatic with a subtle sweetness and hints of honey on the palate. The teas we source are from gardens where sound social and environmental policies are in place. This is grown using bio-farming methods.
