A harvest of exceptionally rare quality with incredibly rich flavours. Its delicate grassy, fruity, and mineral notes balance each other perfectly.

An exceptional harvest from the Taoyuan Shengyuan Garden (53 hectares) located in Taoyuan City, in Hunan Province. Yellow tea is rare: it is harvested and processed in very small quantities, and resembles a cross between white tea and green tea.

This tea is made in a particular way: only the young tender buds are picked (before the traditional Qingming festival, which takes place around 4 or 5 April). Following the firing stage, the buds are wrapped in a piece of cloth then left for around 20 hours, during which time they turn slightly yellow. A brief period of drying completes the process.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

A premium tea of rare quality. Only 300 kg of this legendary tea – formerly reserved for the Emperor – is produced. This is the first time in my life that I have had the chance to taste a Jun Shan Yin Zhen with such powerful aromas. An irreplaceable experience.

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.
