Description

This intense and aromatic second flush tea is positively transporting, with strong fruity, woody, and spicy notes.

In Nepal, east of Kathmandu, there is a valley from which, on a clear day, you can see the fifth highest peak in the world: Makalu. The tea from this high valley is produced by three prestigious plantations: Guranse, Jun Chiyabari and Kuwapani. This latter garden, situated at an altitude of 1,800 metres, has now brought us a real gem: Kuwapani Makalu Tippy.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

A fruity, well-balanced tea. I chose it as an introduction to Kuwapani, a plantation I’m very fond of that produces some remarkable teas.

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.
