Monsoon Tea is founded by Kenneth Rimdahl and Vorakan Wongfu (Aek) in 2013. A veteran in the tea industry, Kenneth was so captivated and impressed by “Miang” (fermented tea leaves) from wild and free-grown tea plants and the sustainable way it is grown, he set up Monsoon Tea with Aek, focusing on the concept of sustainable teas.
Monsoon Tea specializes in exceptional wild and free-grown teas from the hills of northern Thailand. All of our teas come from the original undomesticated camellia sinensis assamica plant indigenous to the Thai highlands. It is an extremely rare tea used in less than one per cent of tea cultivation worldwide.
Characterized by a deep and naturally malty flavour, its rich taste stems from growing in harmony with diverse native plants and herbs in its natural habitat. Unlike conventional plantation teas, Monsoon tea is grown in forests. This non-invasive cultivation method prevents deforestation and is one of the most sustainable ways of planting teas. This method is unique to northern Thailand and has been practiced for generations.
By maintaining the way Thai tea farmers have been planting and harvesting teas, Monsoon Tea is preserving age-old growing traditions. We let the teas thrive naturally with minimal human involvement. It is organically grown and free from herbicides and pesticides.
