ShanTee – part-fermented, charcoal fire-roasted tea of a large-leaved tea species that is local to the border area North Thailand/Burma and has been growing wild there in form of trees for hundreds of years. The tea looks back on a long tradition of use amongst the native hill tribes, Shan and North Thais.
Individual taste, coined by the charcoal fire roasting, little bitters, orange-brown cup, moderate coffeine content, but with the health benefits of green/Oolong teas. ShanTea is 100% organically grown!
Project ShanTea returns 20% of the turnover of all ShanTea sales directly to support aid projects for destitute refugees from Burma’s Shan State area.
This tea should be infused at a water temperature between 75°C – 85°C for about 3 minutes. The characteristic aroma will last undiminished for at least 2, mostly 3 infusions.
