Description

Green Tea from Shan State is an unexpected green tea from Myanmar (formerly Burma). It grows on Namhsan Mountain in the state of Shan in the country's north-east. It is widely assumed that tea cultivation in Myanmar dates back to the kingdom of Ava (1364-1527).

A tea with strong vegetal, fruity, and mineral notes. Its smooth texture gives way to a fine astringency that lingers in the mouth.

Suggestion of preparation

With the tasting set: 4' minutes in water heated to 75°C.

Infusions of 30-40 seconds with the Gong Fu Cha (teapot/Gaiwan).

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.
