The character and subtle quality of this floral, sweet tea have earned it the name “the mocha of teas” or “surgeon’s tea”, because it awakens without over stimulating. A superb leaf with plenty of golden buds. An essential classic at Palais des Thés.

Grand Yunnan Imperial is the most popular single-origin tea at Palais des Thés. It has converted many coffee drinkers and is an excellent substitute for coffee at the start of the day.

Suggestion of preparation

With the tasting set: 4' minutes in water heated to 90°C.

A new tea for me, a strong black tea, very suitable for breakfast.

Beautiful black tea, I like to infuse for 2-3 minutes max, as I don't like it to strong

As delicious as ever

This tea is full and well rounded, with woody notes that linger lightly on the palate. Excellent paired with breakfast fruit and toast.

This is a superb tea to drink in the British way, with a little milk. 100 Centigrade and five minutes and you have a very tasty morning brew. Unique flavour which might take a little getting used to.
