Fine, sustainable teas from Northern Thailand
An introduction to the exclusive teas served by Marchesi 1824
The purity of an ancient tradition.
Whereas most of the tea in the world today comes from large plantations of the domesticated Camelia Sinensis Sinensis plant, the tea used by Marchesi 1824 is free-grown in harmony with unspoilt, sustainable forests. This method of cultivation prevents deforestation and does not impact the local wildlife.
This range of teas grows at an altitude that ranges from 1000m to 1300m, in the border area between Thailand and Myanmar. This is the heart of the region between Assam in India and Yunnan in China where tea was born and has been used in traditional recipes and medicines for centuries.
In this environment the tea plant thrives without any need for herbicides or fertilisers, resulting in pure teas with outstanding aromas and flavoured teas with traditionally exotic notes.
