Cyril Christal, owner of Terre des Thés

Born in 1978, i’m a tea enthusiast since my childhood. My parent were drinking a big teapot of Lapsang Souchong every morning. Adult, i start to discover the world of scented teas and after that, i try differents teas from asian countries. My first collection was around the Sri Lanka‘s teas where i travelled in 2006. I discovered there my first tea plantations.

I have seen a lot of way to create tea but also different kind of consumption and lovely people who share their experiences. In parallel, i created my company to sell tea in France and offer my knowledge of the tea’s world.

In parallel, we do our best to show the tea’s diversity to our customers. Every month, we offer a degustation, where people can test what a real fresh tea is.
Some special degustation are realized with other professionals: how tea can be drunk with cheese, or what are the common point between wine and tea.

The next steps are turned toward the asian countries: Korea, Japan, Darjeeling, Wuyi mountains, Thailand…we hope to visit all those places and be more aware about what happen there for the tea and his environment.
