Happy Birthday Tee!!
It was now time to leave Chiang Mai for the next 10 days and head north. Many hours of winding through the mountains on the curviest road I’ve ever known we arrived in Pai. First stop, the Land Split outside of Pai. This is another place I have been taking about non-stop since I first visited in 2014. Here a friendly family farms fruit and roselle (hibiscus) to serve to visitors passing by on their way to nearby Pembok Waterfall. There is no set price for their spread of fruits, wine, tea, jam, and nuts that they encourage you to eat, eat, eat….just make a donation. It’s a great place away from the mad rush of Pai town.
An exploration of the hibiscus plant. So which part of the plant is hibiscus tea made from….the fruit, the flower, or the sepal?
A very dark hibiscus.
