This black tea comes from Chiang Rai province, Thailand. It is harvested from Assamica tea plants in the village of Wawee, at 800 metres above sea level. This tea garden is environmentally-conscious and contributes to the complete reforestation of the mountain by planting diverse species beside the tea plants in order to restore biodiversity.
