Thailand - Assamica Roasted
Heavily roasted black tea made with the Assamica variety. The extensive roasting carried out in an oven gives pyrogenic, almost smoky notes. The Assamica variety is endemic in Thailand. These large-leaf tea plants produce robust, rustic teas with powerful animal notes.
This tea comes from the village of Doi Mae Salong, in the mountains of northern Thailand, on the Burmese border. Former lands of poppy production, these lands are now dedicated to the production of high quality tea. Although the plantation we work with does not have European organic certification, we are reassured by the tests we carry out and the confidence in the farmer when he promises us that these teas are produced in a natural way without treatment of pesticides.
