Palais des Thés invites you to learn the art of tea tasting and to explore its iconic single-estate teas. Each tea tube features the region, country of origin, tea type, appearance of the leaves, and ideal preparation conditions.

This box contains ten single-estate, loose leaf tea tubes (approximately 2 oz. of tea per tube) of each of the following teas:

- Milky Oolong: with its buttery, vanilla, and fresh floral notes, this gourmet oolong from Thailand is a delight.

- Butterfly of Taïwan: with its woody, honeyed, spicy notes and subtly sweet flavor, this Oolong is round and long in the mouth and unanimously appreciated.

- Genmaicha Yama: a traditional Japanese tea that blends Bancha green tea with roasted brown rice.

- Sencha Ariake: a Japanese green tea, both sweet and invigorating, with a vegetal and very slightly iodized flavor, ideal for discovering the excellence of Sencha teas.

- Long Jing: one of the best reputations among Chinese teas, with its roast chestnut notes.

- Grand Yunnan Imperial: this Chinese black tea provides a subtle energy boost. It is soft and floral, with a subtle astringency and a crowd-pleasing honeyed flavor.

- Darjeeling Margaret's Hope: dark, fruity, and full of character, it stimulates without overexciting.

- Kenya Kirinyaga: this strong black tea's intense woody and honeyed notes, as well as its robust texture, make it an excellent breakfast tea.

- Pu Erh Imperial: a well-known dark tea with woody and liquorice notes that aids digestion.

- Jejudo Imperial: this Korean green tea is a hidden gem with its marine and hazelnut notes typical of spring teas and its very umami flavor.

To go even further, this tasting set includes a booklet that teaches the fundamentals of tea tasting, introduces the single-estate teas, and presents the 10 teas in the set with additional information on the manufacture, origin, etc.
