A hint of Assam enhances this blend of whole leaves from Darjeeling and the highlands of Ceylon.
Ever since colonial times, the English have created tea blends, (Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon etc), using varying proportions depending on the time of day: teas with more body in the morning and lighter ones in the afternoon. In line with this tradition Le Palais des Thés has created blends whose balance is geared to different moments of the day.
Throughout the year, our experts travel in the tea plantations looking for the best pluckings and new, rare, delicious teas.
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 and thereby establishing long-lasting relations with our suppliers allows us to guarantee regular quality control of the teas we buy, and to continue our mission: to bring you the best quality teas and to share our travels and experience with you, while concerning ourselves with environmental issues, working conditions on the estates and the fair trade practices to which we adhere.
