Travel Experience

Monsoon Tea’s unique focus lies on making exceptional wild and free-grown tea from the hills of northern Thailand, using traditional and sustainable cultivation methods. Our mission is to make these distinctively aromatic teas accessible to everyone while conserving the environment and its biodiversity. All of our teas come from the original undomesticated Camellia Sinensis Assamica plant indigenous to the Thai highlands. It is an extremely rare tea used in less than one percent of tea cultivation worldwide.

Responsibility

By maintaining the way Thai tea farmers have been planting and harvesting tea, Monsoon Tea is preserving age-old growing traditions. We let the tea thrive naturally with minimal human involvement. It is organically grown and free from herbicides and pesticides. Created as a collaboration between Russian entomologist Alexey Reshchikov and Monsoon Tea, The Tea Fauna Project is focused on studying biodiversity associated with tea plant species across Southeast Asia. By documenting and studying the different species of animals living around tea, we aim to spread information and in the future create a platform where tea farmers and tea lovers across the world can learn about what creatures live amongst their tea and how changes in the ecosystem affect interspecies interactions.

Business Case

Characterized by a deep and naturally malty flavour, its rich taste stems from growing in harmony with diverse native plants and herbs in its natural habitat. Unlike conventional plantation tea, Monsoon tea is grown in forests. This non-invasive cultivation method prevents deforestation and is one of the most sustainable ways of planting tea. At Monsoon Tea, we specialize in unique native tea grown in harmony with the forests of Northern Thailand. By growing tea in the forest and creating delicious blends for our customers we can prevent deforestation, preserve biodiversity, and provide local communities with a stable source of income.
