This very special tea is seen as the "champagne" of oolongs. It's the Thai version of the famous "Oriental Beauty". It's very fruity and flowery, it's also surprising because of its length in mouth.
Its characteristic is that only the leaves which have been nibbled by a small insect called jacobias formosana (cicada' cousin) are picked up, because its trunk drops secretion on the leaves.
This rolled Thai tea comes from a cultivar called Ching Shin, which started to be planted in this area in the 90's.
This tea comes from the Mae Salong Nok plantation in the North of the country in the famous "Golden Triangle". At an altitude of 1500m, it's one of the plantations protected by the "Royal Project Foundation".
The "Royal Project Foundation", non-profit organisation, has been created in 1970 by His Majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej, King of Thailand.
The objectives of this organisation are to fight against deforestation, the opium production, and the poverty, by integrating socially and economically the exiled tribes from Laos, Burma and China, settled in the mountains in Northern Thailand.
