Made with exceptional black teas from the Araksa Tea Garden, a high grade English Breakfast blend is combined with all-natural vanilla and caramel flavouring. The result is a sweet, balanced and indulgent tea – with a rich and creamy mouthfeel. Great with a drop of milk or without.
Araksa tea garden sits 520m above sea level and is situated in the foothills of the forests of Banchang, in the Mae Tang district of Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Specialising in producing small-batch, boutique and organic teas, Araksa was the first tea garden in Thailand to be certified both USDA and EU organic for their tea production. The garden itself is one of the oldest in Thailand, and left undisturbed for a number of years, chemical fertilisers and pesticides haven’t touched the tea bushes or soil for over a decade.
