We are excited to welcome our first teas from Thailand! Wild Thai Green grows in a micro-climate on the Doi Chiang Dao mountain in Chiang Mai Province. This tea is actually the Assamica variety, which we believe to be native to Assam, India. Camellia Sinensis var. assamica tends to grow more tree-like than the bushier Camellia Sinsensis var. sinensis. They typically grow in more humid, tropical, and low-altitude areas, and have much larger leaves than var. sinensis. Processing for this tea is the fairly standard drum roasting, and we get some pleasantly astringent floral notes like jasmine, as well as some delicate but sweet peach and orange.
