This is the second year we have offered a batch from Kangra. The smooth texture and vegetal, almond and floral notes make this an easy-drinking tea. A very similar profile to the Darjeelings, and a good sensory experience.
Situated on the western flanks of the Himalaya range, on the border with Pakistan just below Kashmir, the gardens that extend down towards the deep Kangra valley are ideal for producing top quality teas. There is an extraordinary quantity of old Classic China tea bushes here, very fine bushes planted at high altitude, with a climate and plucking seasons similar to those of Darjeeling. In recent years, certain Kangra gardens have produced some remarkable teas and have obtained the status of protected geographical indication, a mark of quality.

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.
