The Namring Tea Estate in Darjeeling dates back to 1855, when the British first planted high quality Chinese tea bushes grown from seeds. This estate is one of the largest in India, covering more than 475 hectares. Namring Tea Garden is located at an altitude of 1400 metres. 

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

“The Namring Upper plantation is located in a magnificent valley, a two-hour jeep ride from the city of Darjeeling. The region is so humid, and this valley so deep, that on fine days you can see the water evaporating and forming clouds that rise straight up from the jungle.”

Special qualities

- Origin: Darjeeling, India

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.
