Thailand is known for its sensory delights: expansive beaches, breathtaking sunsets, zesty cuisine and vibrantly coloured silks. But tea? Not so much. Neighbours India and China always seemed to have a lock on producing the popular drink - until now.
That's right; change is brewing at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, in the lush countryside of northern Thailand. Now, guests can enjoy a steaming pot of tea from leaves grown in the dense, tropical region around the Resort - perfect tea-cultivating conditions.
Whatever your cup of tea, you'll find it here with an exotic twist, from Thai Oolong and Lemongrass to Whole Chamomile, Mulberry and Bael Fruit. Even better, your sipping helps support The Royal Project, an initiative launched by the government in 1969 to provide hill tribe peoples with new agricultural options once the opium poppy was banned.
