This garden lies at an altitude of between 1,800 and 2,000 metres in a remote part of eastern Nepal, in the village of Pathivara. Opposite Kumbhakarna mountain, Pathivara is just 5 km from Singhalila reserve, a biodiverse area in the eastern Himalayas. The area is completely free of pollution, so that the natural oxidation process takes place in a very healthy environment.

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.
