Description

This is a gourmet Grand Cru with a slight bitterness and velvety texture supporting fruity, vanilla and honey notes accompanied by hints of cocoa and a woody impression.

Tay Con Linh, situated at an altitude of 2,400 metres, is one of Vietnam’s highest mountains, close to the Chinese border. Known as the “roof of the north-east”, this mountain, which lies in the west of Ha Giang province, is famous for being home to the ancient Shan tea plants. These trees form an important and rare botanical heritage, and are prized for the quality of the teas they produce. Most of the villagers who harvest the tea in the region belong to very diverse ethnic minorities. The growing methods used there are pesticide- and fertiliser-free.

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.
