In 2014, master tea blender Kenneth Rimdahl, an expert in the Hamburg school of tea blending and flavoring with 20 years of experience in his trade, has come to Chiang Mai to establish Monsoon Teas and bring new blessings to the teas of north Thailand with his art by developing a Thai-themed flavored tea blend line on the basis of north Thailand’s fine teas.

SiamTeas has started a cooperation with Kenneth and Monsoon Teas to create a dedicated line of flavored Thai tea blends, combining selected green, Oolong and black teas from north Thailand with local fruit, flowers, herbs and spices and other natural aroma agents (essential oils) to reflect not only the character of Thai teas, but also the Thai culture and feel as a whole as well as particular theme aspects thereof. The resulting choice of eight flavored Siam/Monsoon Thai Tea Blends, which we proudly offer in Siam Tea Shop, is a list of true masterpieces of artisan tea blending, conquering the heart of any tea lover or gourmet at first try, whether enjoyed hot or as a delicious and refreshing ice tea beverage.

Hillside Blend is a flavored Thai Tea Blend inspired by the bright and clear mountain atmosphere in the mountainous landscapes of north Thailand, whose taste in the savorer’s mind inevitably evokes the backdrop of forest- and cropland-covered mountains, whose gentle shapes and rounded tops unite with the horizon in the far distance. It is also here, where in Fang district, at altitudes just beyond 1000 meter, the black tea used to create this delicious tea blend is collected by members of the local Lahu hilltribe from ancient semi-wild tea trees.

  1. Kayleigh

    Once steeped the tea liquid is amber with a red hue and bares a sweet, strawberry fruit scent with undertones of wood and sour malt.

    The first few sips reveal delicate yet sweet fruit notes with some astringency and a sour malt background. The after taste is sweet and fruity whilst not being too overpowering. The fruit is coming through as strawberry sweet but cranberry sour/tart.

    As it cools the sour malt comes through a little more but the after taste is fruity and it lingers with the malt, adding some dryness to it all. Perhaps slightly perfumed over all but in a nice contrast to the malt.
