The Badamtam tea estate is one of the oldest tea gardens in West Bengal. It covers 321 hectares at an altitude of between 200 and 1,500 metres. The rich aromatic complexity offered by first flush teas make them the most renowned of their kind.

This spring Darjeeling reveals powerful vegetal, fresh almonds and toasted notes, which develop against a finely powdered texture.

Suggestion of preparation

With the teapot or the tasting set: 3’45 minutes in water heated to 185°F.

Spring Darjeelings may sometimes develop a fine astringency. For those who are sensitive to the tannin structure of these teas, a cold infusion, or an infusion at a lower temperature (160-175°F) is recommended.

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.
