This Grand Cru is harvested in Gopaldhara, a tea garden in the Mirik Valley, Darjeeling. This tea garden is one of the highest in the region. This tea is a third flush: the leaves are more strongly oxidised during production.

A smooth, gourmet black tea with a powdered finish which reveals lily, honey and toasted notes.

To go further:
In the year 1881, the original planters started planting teas on lush green paddy fields that belonged to a person named ‘Gopal’. As the paddy fields were interspersed with numerous natural streams, called ‘dharas’ in the local language, a combination of the two gave the name ‘Gopaldhara’ to the planted tea fields.

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.
