Barsha means "rain", in tribute to the rainfall that shapes the leaves and the buds of this end-of-year harvest. This splendid tea is made in the little- known Panchthar tea garden, by a young woman, Apsara, who shares her first name with a nymph.

This autumn tea is shrouded in mystery, revealing floral, fruity and fresh almond notes. A subtle tea that's hard to pin down.

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.
