Palais des Thes, Paris

#128 of 423 in Shopping in Paris
Palais des Thés is a unique enterprise driven by the passion and perfectionism of its director. First and foremost, the company is motivated by enthusiasm and pleasure rather than by conventional business logic.

Every year, François-Xavier Delmas and his team spend several months touring plantations, mainly in Asia, to source the very best teas. Thanks to its constant presence on the ground, which is unique in the world, Palais des Thés has developed a very detailed knowledge of the gardens and plantations, growing regions and techniques, and above all the people who devote their time, day in day out, to producing premium teas. Over the years, the team have had the opportunity to taste some truly exceptional teas and discover rare pluckings, veritable gems of local gastronomy that are still totally unknown in the west.

With its “grand cru” selection, Palais des Thés introduces thousands of connoisseurs to special seasonal teas and the team’s favourites – the finest the world of tea has to offer. First-flush Darjeelings, new-season green teas from China and Japan, Wu Longs from Taiwan, dark teas from Yunnan… The selection is infinitely varied, the quantities often small and the availability short-lived.

Palais des Thés also applies its expertise to the creation of flavoured and scented teas, which are available from some thirty stores around France and the world, and at palaisdesthes.com, a pioneering site at the forefront of tea.

  • In tea, kusumi tea and mariage are the staples of souvenirs, but this tea is also very delicious, and I think that it is perfect for souvenirs. A flavored tea named Paris for Him is especially recommended. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • This is an absolutely wonderful tea shop, with just about any tea kind you can imagine. All the teas are beautifully presented (and can be sniffed at, too). Some tastings are available, as well. This ...  more »

  • Love their tea. It’s original, outrageously well perfumed.
  • Gotta love shopping there. I was only disappointed so many of their teas are blended with things and flavors, a "purist" couldn't find happiness in their cups of teas.
