Bai Hao Oolong teas are only harvested and produced in July and August, and the finest batches are known as Oriental Beauty. Its distinctive fragrance is the result of the activity of an insect commonly known as paoli.

This exceptional tea is a delight with its floral, fruity and vanilla notes. These complex, distinct and complementary fragrances boast a very long finish.

To go further:
By sucking up the tea leaf sap, this insect triggers a transformation in the leaf's metabolism, which stimulates the appearance of new aromatic combinations.
In order to bring out all the aromatic complexity of this tea, we recommend multiple infusions using the traditional Chinese Gong Fu Cha method.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
