Sustainable Harvest

All of LST tea is grown wild in the mountains of Northern Thailand. Because the tea is on a mountain slope and plantation free, the tea leaves have to be picked by hand by the Lahu tribal people and no machinery is used. This ensures that the tea is never exposed to chemicals, fuels, herbicides or any other outside influence. These factors are what makes LST so special and unique. Each year, the picking is suspended from November to March in order to let the plants rest and recover from picking. All our teas are grown without the use of pesticides, as the tea plants contain their own natural pesticide.
