The Tea history of Thailand is not as rich as China’s, but it is unique. We will tell you about its history a little later. 

Jin Xuan Oolong "Golden Lily"

This variety was introduced in Thailand for the first time in 1994 within the Alishan mountains, on the island of Taiwan. It was cultivated in the northern mountains of Thailand Doi Mae Salong and Doi Wawee, a local ethnic Chinese community that settled in these places in the 1950s. Because of this, the Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand tea industry has received a new round of development and production of high-quality tea from these beautiful corners of our planet.

North Part of Thailand is famous for its unique mountain scenery, beautiful waterfalls, rich soil and environmental cleanliness. 

Production and Collection Time

The main crop accounts for the spring months. During this period, residents of nearby villages come to collect the tea harvest for local tea masters and owners of factories. Our tea produces by a local factory, which has many years experience in the production and cultivation of tea.

Our tea grows at an altitude of 1,100 – 1,300 m. above sea level, as a raw material used for the production of the three upper leaf and a small tip. Tea is harvested 3 - 6 times a year. With extensive experience, the tea master tea turns out amazing tea, and with only a small amount of the crop being available, it makes this tea almost always fresh.
