Description

Green Tea from north Thailand's native tea cultivar

DMS Bai Yai Assamica Green Tea, leaves; loose green leaves tea from the camellia sinensis assamica tea species local to North Thailand. In the mountain region of Doi Mae Salong, where this tea, in north Thailand also growing wild in the form of trees, is cultivated by the local Yunnan-origin population in tea gardens, the plant finds optimal conditions at heights between 1200 and 1600 meters and a climate characterized by a 3 seasons, a rainy period, a hot and dry period and a cold period, each of them lasting about 4 months a year.

In the nomenclature of the DMS Bai Yai Assamica Green Tea, DMS means the region of cultivation, Doi Mae Salong, while Bai Yai (Thai = “large leaf”) is the designation that has established, among local tea producers for the assamica tea tree.

The large open leaf produces a clear and bright yellow-green infusion. None to only moderate bittering (dependent oninfusion period) with appropriate temperature of the used water (see below).

In the processing, to obtain Green Tea, unlike the partly fermented Oolong Teas or in case of the completely fermented Black Tea, the fermentation processBaiYai_Assamica_DMS_teatree_2_shopformatof the tea leaves is stopped through heating right after a brief withering period. Apart from the characteristic taste and aroma of Green  Teas, this procedure ensures that nearly all active substances contained in the fresh tea leave remain preserved.

This assamica green tea will maintain taste and aroma for 2-3 infusions, depending on the duration of the individual infusion periods.

  1. It’s strikes me how this tea reminds me of several teas at the same time: Long Jing, Mao Jian and Yu Wu. This casual leaf à la Pou Chong is rich in flavor (prominent nutty and roasted notes and amazingly sweet and mellow finish) and lacks astringency and bitterness when steeped several times.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Wow, very tastefull tea with nutty notes. Very sweet and amazing. I like it too much.
    A big and very good surprise.
