What an incredible place. We'd never been to a tea plantation before and we're sure glad we listened to a friend who recommended Araksa. The plantation is set amidst rolling hills under beautiful acacia trees. It's truly a magical place. "Charlie" who operates the tour,...More

I very much enjoyed the quiet, calm of this tea garden. The drive from Chiang Mai is about an hour and it's a pleasant drive. Charlie was full of interesting facts and the tea tastes so good! What a great half day trip!

I’m a big tea drinker so learning about the tea plants, the process for making different types of tea, and getting to pluck tea leaves was awesome!! It was such a beautiful place too, I would highly recommend this to nature lovers and tea lovers.

It was a great drive to the plantation. The guide was very knowledgeable. I had no idea about the processing and picking of tea leaves. Very informative. Picking tea leaves and tasting was great fun. Would do again.
