Thai Mountain Tea
In northern Thailand, where the climate allows for fruit crops, a little-known estate is perpetuating the tradition of grand oolong teas.
The youngest leaves are picked early in the morning when the odours of the garden begin to mingle with the colours of dawn; they are then worked one by one, rolled into jade-green balls.
Scented with the red rice typical of Thai mountain regions, they absorb its fragrance to create a pale yet bright yellow-green elixir that is smooth, subtle, and endowed with a powdery, velvety sensation-spirited yet silken, unique and marvelous.
