Mae Salong Tea Tasting

The tea crops of Doi Mae Salong In Chiang Rai are held in high regard by the general public. The quality is achieved by the geography and their specific elevation, perhaps. A large 4WD vehicle was standing by to collect me after my afternoon flight touched down. “Is this all?,” asked the male staff from Choke Jumroen Tea Crop with a hint of surprise. I replied with a nod, as extensive travelling has taught me well how to pack.

A little over an hour later, we slipped Into Mae Salong Villa so I could put my things In the decent sized bungalow. The weather was probably too cold for Bangkokians but certainly not so cold it pained. I took some snaps at the serene surrounding almost immediately before I was called to dinner about an hour later.Served on the entire table was an overwhelming array of Yunnan Chinese delicacies including braised pork knuckle and buns, mushroom in soy sauce and double-boiled black chicken to name a few. And they proved to taste as good as they look. The pork knuckle was especially pleasing. They braised it long enough it was tenderized while the flavor was in no way over the top. Perfect when had with the buns.

I slept a little late into the next morning because of the incredibly fine weather. But It took me only under twenty minutes to get to the richly green tea crops. I casually proceeded along the aisles where some workers were already picking the tea leaves. “Go for the sprouts with three leaves. Those are the best,” advised a pro. And so my work for the day began.

Wu Long tea is mostly grown with branches from Taiwan. It is considered an excellence in the world of teas and enjoys immense popularity among tea drinkers. Wu Long tea must be grown in colder climate at an elevation of 1,200 meters above sea level or higher. And contrary to popular belief, drinking tea does not cause constipation. In fact regular consumption of properly infused tea helps with bowel movements as tea leaves contain certain laxative substances. Having one cup of tea in the afternoon helps improve the balance of your body systems. My pleasure time ended shortly. The pleasure was not derived from the food or drinks but from the visit to such a calm location with purified air and genuine hospitality. If you, too, are searching for something along this line set a fews day aside and come for some think that will be best
