Who we are


Delmas at North Tukvar Darjeeling

Created in Paris in 1987, Palais des Thés is a brand of premium tea that offers all-natural Signature flavored teas ("Les Créations"), pure single-estate teas and exceptional limited edition Grand Crus.

Our founder François-Xavier Delmas has been touring the world's tea plantations for more than 25 years, forming long lasting relationships with suppliers in order to bring the best quality teas to his customers.

To bring our passion and knowledge of tea to you, 2 successful Tea Schools are also ran, one  in Paris and a new one in New York City.

Since 2011, we have brought our expertise and premium quality teas to the US. With a team in New York City, two stores have opened in New York City in 2012, and a Tea School in 2015. Also, many wholesale partnerships have been built everywhere in the country.



Tea Plucking

For 30 years, we have been committed to bringing you the freshest and most exceptional teas from China, India, Japan, Sri Lanka… and Paris where our Signature flavored teas (“
Les Créations”) are created.

Our unique selection includes more than a hundred green, black, white, oolong, pu erh and rooibos teas each year as well as a few ephemeral “Grands Crus”. All the teas are selected at the source by our team of tea tasters, often from small plantations in remote locations,and in accordance with a strict code of ethics.



Choosing our teapots, cups and canisters allows you to have exclusive teaware. Over the years, we have established special relationships with our suppliers, who design many custom accessories solely for Palais des Thés.

Some of these artisans and craftsmen practice the time-honored crafts of their ancestors, while others give free rein to their creativity. Both have been selected by Palais des Thés to create objects of the highest quality - both aesthetic and functional.
