Welcome to this fabulous tea and chats episode with Rainy, a tea vendor who at the time of recording had been traveling in Thailand exploring tea farms and sourcing delicious tea!
I learnt a lot in episode 61, from the existence of tea forests (yes, you read correctly!), what Pu-erh tea is and we also had an honest conversation about some of the unethical practices farmers and vendors in Thailand are faced with in the industry today.
I feel so grateful that Rainy found time on her travels to share her knowledge with me, and I hope you enjoy learning about Thailand's tea farms as much as I did!
Grab a cuppa and join the chats!
(Also, I will now be taking a little two-month tea break - so the next season of Pod of Tea will launch in July! Follow me on Instagram @podoftea to keep up to date with my day to day teas in the meantime.)
