Kalapani is a new small manufacture in the very north of the Ilam Valley where the tea grows at an altitude of over 2000 m. Kalapani means ‵‵black water′′, which refers to a small lake in the area. This secret garden produces beautiful teas.

This silky-textured spring black tea unveils a whirlwind of floral notes, which develop into vanilla and camphor 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.
