Monsoon tea specializes in wild and free-grown teas from the original Camellia Sinensis Aassamica tea plant, an undomesticated tea plant native to northern Thailand. Less than one percent of teas worldwide are made using Camellia Sinensis Assamica making this a very rare and unique tea.
For us how the tea is grown is as important as how it is processed. Unlike the domesticated camellia sinensis sinensis, which is grown on large commercial plantations, our tea grows in its natural environment and does not require logging of large forested areas in order to be planted.
It is also more robust than the domesticated tea plants used in monoculture plantations and possesses natural defences against insects and parasites. Hence all of our teas are organically grown and free from herbicides and pesticides.
