Les champs de thé s’entretiennent aussi l’hiver

Durant les mois d’hiver le thé pousse peu voire pas du tout. On va dès lors s’occuper davantage de l’entretien des champs. Du parc à bois, par exemple. Le vocable « parc à bois » désigne un espace planté d’arbustes à partir desquels on va prélever des boutures. Chacun de ces arbustes a donc été sélectionné avec une très grande attention. Chaque théier-mère, comme ici dans le parc à bois de Namring Tea Estate (Inde), peut fournir de 50 à 300 boutures par an.

  1. I have had a lovely time looking through your website. The next time that you are in India, look up my good friend,Bob Jones,who looks after Tara Tea Estate-a plantation that has a beautiful setting overlooking Lake Umiam (Barapani) which is near Shillong in Meghalaya. Bob’s teas, being high grown have the lovely flavour and aroma of tea like some Darjeelings and Nuwara Eliyas but nevetheless has a distinct character of it’s own. Let me have an email address and I will send a photo of Tara.

  2. Dear Larry, Thank you for your comment. I heard that Tara is a beautifull tea estate but I don’t know the quality of the tea produced there. Of course you can forward my email address : team@palaisdesthes.com
    Thanks you !
