Gyokuro is a shaded tea: three weeks before they are harvested, the tea bushes are deprived of light to encourage the development of an umami taste and a smooth texture. Its name means "Jade dew", a reference to its elegance and tenderness.

An organic spring green tea with complex milky and vegetal notes, which develop intensely against a highly smooth texture.

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.
