Monteaco Forest Friendly Tea
Our concept of "Forest Friendly Tea" is rather simple. All our tea is grown in harmony with nature in Northern Thailand and provides sustainable conditions to preserve forests,
protect biodiversity and provide long term source of income for local tea farmers.
By offering farmers more money for their tea if they leave nature virtually untouched, natural diversity is created within our tea plantations, resulting in a functioning ecosystem that supplies oxygen, clean water, pollination of plants, pest control and most importantly, a fantastic cup of tea.
All our teas are grown in harmony with the surrounding forest, preserving the natural ecosystem's balance between the environment and the tea producers working there.
No pesticides, no fertilizers, no irrigation systems.
Farmers = Friends.
We have come close to the people who cultivate and work with our tea in the mountains. After having developed close relationships with them over the course of the past ten years they have become members of our family.
We only produce and offer high-quality Forest Friendly Tea. Green, Black, White, Oolong, either pure or flavored with flowers, fruits or spices.
Brew them hot, enjoy them iced or make a batch of kombucha at home. We want to make teas everyone can love, as the more tea we sell, the more forests we can protect.
FOREST FRIENDLY TEARead more
We've looked at tea production all over the world and found that the most sustainable way to work with the tea plant historically has been to make food, not a drink! For centuries, people in the mountains of Northern Thailand and surrounding countries have fermented and eaten tea leaves, creating a dish called "Hmiang" . When producing tea for "Hmiang", tea plants are allowed to grow tall together with the surrounding forest.
We're using the same way of thinking, but instead we produce high quality teas for drinking, creating a new way forward in the world of tea together with the farmers.
