About us

The story of Palais des Thés began in Paris in 1986 when a group of 40 friends, led by François-Xavier Delmas, opened a shop selling tea. They wanted to be sure they were selling good quality products, and decided to source their teas directly from the countries of origin. Passionate about their cause, the friends made it their mission to introduce French people to the best teas. This philosophy still lies behind everything the company does.

Because the origin of tea defines a key part of the drinking experience, Palais des Thés travels the world to bring you exceptional harvests. The strong partnerships that we maintain with our growers lead to an infinite variety of flavours and emotions.

And because tea is also a source of inspiration, Palais des Thés in Paris designs flavoured teas and infusions that awaken your senses to this exquisite beverage.
