A 2017 Garden Direct Series exclusive! This impressive collection features seasonal micro-lots of single-origin teas we source and import directly from artisan tea farmers.

This micro-lot of organic Hong Shui Oolong was hand-made by a third generation oolong tea artisan in Doi Mae Salong in northern Thailand. Only a very limited amount of this extraordinary tea was made.
