DMS Bai Yai Green Tea
DMS Santikhiri Sen Chaa Green Tea, leaves; loose green leaves tea from a species local to North Thailand. In the mountain region of Doi Mae Salong, where this tea is cultivated by the local Yunnan-origin population, the plant finds optimal conditions at heights between 1200 and 1600 meters and a climate characterized by a 3 seasons, a rainy period, a hot and dry period and a cold period, each of them lasting about 4 months a year.
In the nomenclature of this tea Santikhiri stands for the tea plant’s local origin (official Thai name for Doi Mae Salong), while Sen Chaa are the Thai words for tea leaves.
The large open leave gives a clear and bright yellow-green infusion. Only moderate bittering with appropriate temperature of the used water.
In the processing, to obtain Green Tea, unlike the partly fermented Oolong Teas or in case of the completely fermented Black Tea, the fermentation process of the tea leaves is stopped through heating right after a brief withering period. Apart from the characteristic taste and aroma of Green Teas, this procedure ensures that nearly all active substances contained in the fresh tea leave remain preserved.
DMS Santkhiri Sen Chaa Green Tea, leaves, combines the classical taste of traditional Chinese Green Tea with the well-known health benfits of the same. Best taste results are achieved with 3-5 grams of tea leaves infused with 300ml of ca. 75°C hot water for an infusion period of 1- 3 minutes. The tea will maintain taste and aroma for 2-3 infusions, depending on the duration of the individual infusion periods.
