Thailand - Where the Wild Tea Grows and Modern Oolong Tea Flows

In the remote northern regions of Thailand stately indigenous tea trees flourish in the tropical climate of the heavily forested mountainous Chiang Rai Province. Anthropologists and tea historians believe the birthplace of tea to be adjoining areas of remote jungle wilderness that runs from Assam, India to China's south- ern Yunnan province, across the top of Laos and what today is Myanmar, down into northern Thailand, and across the northern regions of Vietnam.

Highly selected original & pure tea from Thailand

Ethnic minority tribes of Akha, Hmong, Labu, Lisu, Kosen, and Lua that originated in Mainland China and Myanmar (formerly Burma), have been settled in the mountain- ous remote jungle regions of northern Thailand, surrounded by the borders of Laos and Myanmar.

ECOLOGY YOU CAN TRUST

LONG & WELL KEPT TRADITIONS

Local populations have made tea from the leaves, as well as foraging the forest floor for other roots and herbs.

GENERATIONS LONG TRADITIONS

For generations the people of these regions have made a kind of picked tea known as let-pet or miang.
