    It was a lovely tour. The pick-up was prompt and an hour's ride took us up the hill to Araksa Tea Garden. Charlie and Belle were lovely to chat with and full of information about tea. Learnt so much about my favourite drink of all time. I could imagine living up there, it was so tranquil. And plucking tea leaves was a fun experience I couldn't get enough of!

What To Expect

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.

    Great experience. One of the best activities I had in Chiang Mai
  • Sen 22 Jan 2018
    The Araksa Tea Garden is a beautiful and calm place on the mountain in Chiang Mai. We love the tea plucking experience and enjoy the afternoon tea very much. The staff in the tea garden are friendly and knowledgeable. Lisu Lodge is interesting but we feel that it's not worth to stay for too long.
  • po chi 18 Nov 2017
    it is a very good experience, to know that how to make tea and have a nice tea time, i will come back with my children next time.
  • Viv 7 Nov 2017
    The tea garden tour was very nice with Charlie's lively explanation and guidance. While there was no tour guide to organise the whole itinerary and overall time, which we had to voice out to get the Lisu walk after lunch. 5 stars for the tea garden only.
  • YEE MING 10 Sep 2017
    Charlie is very enthusiastic to teach us about tea and picking up tea leaves. Parents and I had a great experience here! You wont be disappointed to join this tour!
  • tai hang 1 Sep 2017
    The plantation experience is interesting and informative. 😊 Will be great if the experience section can be longer and more involvement in the plantation process.
