This black tea is flavoured with freshly harvested lotus flowers. The tea is blended with stamensso that the flavour is absorbed by contact. Over a thousand flowers are needed to produce 40 kilogrammes of lotus tea. A rare and highly delicate flavoured tea.
A Grand Cru with strong lotus, woody and honey notes whose mellow texture enhances its woody and aniseedy fragrances.

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.
