Description

This is a very special white tea from Sri Lanka made up solely of long downy buds that give the infusion a sweet flavour. A delicate, refined premium tea with mushroom, damp wood, vegetal, dry wood and honey notes. A must!

Located on the outskirts of Ratnapura, known as the “City of Gems”, the Opatha garden is surrounded by the Babarabotuva and Buluthota Rakwana mountain ranges on the edge of the Sinharaja forest reserve.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

After trekking endlessly from garden to garden, factory to factory in Sri Lanka, at last my efforts are reaping rewards. I managed to convince a planter to make us a tea made only of buds, a tea that is not only beautiful to look at, but is a true gastronomical experience!

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.
