ARAKSA TEA GARDENLocated in Mae Tang District, Chiang Mai, on a scenic, evergreen hill, Araksa Tea Garden specialises in producing high quality Assam tea, a black tea named after the name of India’s largest tea growing region.

First tea garden in Thailand certified “organic” by the USDA and the EU
“The name “Araksa” translates to “Preserve” in Sanskrit. Our philosophy at Araksa is to preserve and conserve our surrounding environment and local culture. We are passionate about creating an ecosystem that can sustain both the business and environment we are using.
At Araksa we believe quality stems from the environment and social wellbeing. Sustainability is our path to providing high quality tea and we make a constant effort to ensure that everyone involved works with this ideology in mind.
Our garden is located in a designated agricultural area, which we do not encroach beyond our boundaries.
We believe our responsibility is not only to protect the environment around us, but to help improve upon it.
Our entire garden is USDA and EU Certified. Our tea is grown, harvested and processed in the most sustainable way. We do not use chemicals or harmful toxins; we have created natural buffer zones to prevent contamination from the air and soil and we continue to pluck by hand rather than using machines in order to use clean energy.”
