About Nilgiri Tea

A finely flavoured Indian Nilgiri tea, with a bright, brisk liquor and a smooth and rounded flavour. Nilgiri teas are grown high in the Blue Mountains in Tamil which are situated in southern India. The tea is harvested throughout the year.

Nilgiri is thought to be some of the finest tea produced anywhere as is compared to Darjeeling for its quality.

The least known of the Indian teas producing a lively fresh bright brisk taste. The cup colour is copper-red with a scent of fresh flowers. It is often used as the base tea for Chai (known as masala chai or Spiced Chai) enjoyed by millions of Indians from morning to night.

If you enjoy a soft un-tannic tea, Nilgiri is the tea you should try!

Region: India
