This Grand Cru won us over with its complex flavours. Its woody, spicy, cocoa, fruity and honeyed notes emerge in succession, blending harmoniously together.

For the origin of our newest black tea, we look to the Anhui Province, one of China’s major tea regions. Keemun is among the most famous and prized teas produced there and this one particularly stands out as a jewel among the ones that are currently being produced.

Qimen is what in China is known as a “refined” tea (as against the “unrefined” teas which are manufactured using the leaves in the just-plucked state, then cutting, grading and sorting them into different categories at the end of the manufacturing process).

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.
