Bring the best quality teas
Every year, our experts travel in the tea plantations, mostly in Asia.
The fact that we travel so extensively, that we taste and buy on location has many advantages and allows us to find rare crops by looking outside the traditional supplier circuit, to taste and to share with you the harvests of small plantations, which are often hidden away.
Visiting tea estates regularly allows us to guarantee regular quality control of the teas we buy and to periodically check up on the plucking methods, the way they are worked, treated...
Le Palais des Thés wants to communicate its passion for tea and introduce people to the gastronomic delights of tea, which have remained unknown in the West for too long.
A responsible buying policy
Since it was established, Le Palais des Thés has maintained a constant presence on the ground, forming lasting relations with growers built on trust and friendship. The environment, sustainable development and fair trade are priority issues for Le Palais des Thés.
Our good knowledge of the planters and their ways of managing the plantations allows us to require them to work in accordance with our buying practices:
- no child labour, no enforced labour,
- respect for the environment through clean farming methods,
- no deforestation,
- payment of decent wages to workers,
- respect of health and safety standards.
Discovering the cultures of the world
Tea is the drink most consumed in the world after water. Tea production provides a livelihood for millions of people in countries where it is grown. The tea trade is based on strong relationships between people. Le Palais des Thés wants to help its customers learn about the cultures of tea-producing countries, by sharing the stories of its travels and experiences.
