Welcome to Chaidim !!!

Chaidim is an organic tea brand from Thailand. With the local farmers, Chaidim produces in the province of Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand, organic herbal teas such as lemongrass, chamomile, ginger and butterfly pea and organic teas such as green tea, oolong tea and black tea.

Chaidim Organic Tea

With an overview on the complete process, from crops to final product, and operating only via mechanical methods, the company develops tea and herbal tea from single source field, each type of tea having specific aromas and flavors of its own, without any blending. The production is strictly based on 100% organic production methods with no pesticide and no chemical used during the process.

Chaidim is like a circle, shaped like a teapot. What it takes, it gives it back, forming an harmonious lifestyle taking into account the earth, the soil, the natural fauna, the seasons and the workers, up to the final product. It is called sustainability, or preservation. By not using pesticides and chemical fertilizers, Chaidim is allowing the eco system to protect itself from natural predators, allowing the soil to be fertile, earth worms patiently recycling the soil, giving nutrients to the tea trees, bees patrolling the area, pollination, the good old fermented manure to feed this same soil. A world of authenticity where production rhymes with quality and terroir, and not with quantity and market price fluctuations.

Chaidim Organic Tea

Chaidim tea pluckers, tea makers and tea masters are all sharing these organic concepts to lead their life, i.e., passion for tea, knowledge of traditional cultivation methods, limited exposure to chemicals, taking care of the environment as an investment for the future, and as a legacy, an heritage for the younger generation.

Being together, working together develops social bond and forms community, where everybody works toward community development goals, educating their children, creating lasting families. Of course, better health means better relationship, better relationship develops harmony within the family, with education comes knowledge, and with knowledge comes passion.

Passion for tea, organic tea...

 


Red Oolong Tea | Made in Thailand

Red Dragon Oolong Tea / Chaidim Premium Oolong Tea from Thailand

Red Dragon Oolong Tea comes from the High Mountain of Doi Mae Fa Luang, in the Northern Province of Chiang Rai, in Thailand.

 

Let's compare two red Oolong teas as in the picture below:

Red Dragon Oolong is on the left and Ruby Oolong is on the right. Both teas come from the same province, Chiang Rai, in Thailand. Red Dragon has been crafted by a Chinese tea master and Ruby Oolong by a Taiwanese tea master. When I say a tea master, I talk about men with 50 years of experience, since their teenage years, dealing with all the stages involved in the crafting of a great tea.

Similar to a wine production, tea masters refine their art with time .... only true experience can dictate the rules of crafting a great tea, a grand Cru !
