WHO THE HECK ARE WE
Love Some Tea, LLC (LST), is a sustainable tea retail business that was started by a couple of laid back tea connoisseurs .
WHAT MAKES LST SO DARN SPECIAL
LST comes from Cameila Sinensis Assamica teas which grow naturally in the forests of Northern Thailand. This type of tea does not harm the forest or any animal habitats. This tea contains tannin (biofalvinoids) which is a natural repellent against insects so pesticides are not required. Since it is grown wild in the forests, no fertilizer is used.
Cameila Sinensis Assamica came to Thailand in the late 1980’s to provide opium farmers an alternative lifestyle. LST was developed to bring this natural delicious tea to the world because it’s sustainable and does not destroy forests or animal habitats.
LST is harvested 8 months out of the year from March thru October. November thru February the wild seeds begin to take root, and our existing plants grow and flourish; thus we do not harvest the teas for those 4 months.
WHY IN THE WORLD DO WE DO IT
Our mission is to provide high quality and highly sustainable natural tea to people worldwide. Our tea is handpicked by Hill Tribe People (indigenous peoples of Thailand) which provides them stable income and allow them to live happily in their villages without seeking alternative work.
OUR SUPERMAGNIFICENT TEAS
• Black Flavored Teas: As a base we use a black tea from a Lahu village in the mountains of Fang. This tea was planted about 60 years ago by the leader of the Lahu people.
• Green flavored Teas: As a base we use a Green tea from Mae Teang near Chiang Mai. The trees are between 20 and 100 years old, but have been trimmed to make picking the teas easier. The trees are well protected and never damaged.
• We currently have 4 flavors of tea but will continue to bring new flavors to market.
