This tea is made in a family-owned plantation that was founded in 2006. The plantation is highly committed to organic agriculture. Its name, "Sukui", means "gratitude" in Indonesian, in tribute to the natural world which provides us with this tea.
This balanced, gourmet Grand Cru develops floral and vegetal notes, as well as vanilla hints, all against a smooth texture.
This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.

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.
