Located in the village of Nepaltar, Himalayan Shangri-La works alongside local communities to create wonderful tea. This may be a summer flush, but its leaves are only mildly oxidised and reveal delicate floral notes.

This Nepalese summer flush is characterised by almond and floral notes which bring to mind wild flowers, as well as its 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.
