The Araksa Tea Garden, situated in the beautiful hills of Chiang Mai, will introduce you to the finer side of tea making. More than just dipping a bag into hot water to let it steep, the art of crafting tea begins right at the source and this tea garden will show you how it's done. You'll tour the tea garden, and then learn the processes and methods that it uses in order to grow and cultivate tea plants. There is an art to merely choosing the tea leaves, as the age of the leaves are vital, and you'll learn how to choose the best ones. Then you'll take part in the roasting, where you'll discover how to hand knead the leaves and roast them to perfection. You'll naturally be able to taste the tea itself afterwards as you enjoy a cup of it and a delicious Thai meal. Immerse yourself in the art of tea and relax with a cup as you breathe in the fresh air of the hills.
