Our buying policy
Inspired by an age-old recipe from a Tibetan monastery, Thé des Moines is a rare blend with a unique flavour.In Tibet, legend has it that a community of monks were preparing a secret blend of tea, plants and flowers. After being left to steep for several days, the tea leaves were carefully removed and set aside. Through this mysterious alchemy, the monks gave their tea its exceptional fragrance.
The figure of a wise Tibetan monk which adorns the canister represents the origins and symbolism of Thé des Moines by Le Palais des Thés. Capacity: 100g of tea.

Throughout the year, our experts travel in the tea plantations looking for the best pluckings and new, rare, delicious teas.
The fact that we travel so extensively, that we taste and buy on location has many advantages and allows us to find rare crops by looking outside the traditional supplier circuit, to taste and to share with you the harvests of small plantations, which are often hidden away.
Visiting tea estates regularly and thereby establishing long-lasting relations with our suppliers allows us to guarantee regular quality control of the teas we buy, and to continue our mission: to bring you the best quality teas and to share our travels and experience with you, while concerning ourselves with environmental issues, working conditions on the estates and the fair trade practices to which we adhere.
