A strong Single origin leaf tea from the blue mountains - Nilgiri Tea
The Nilgiri Mountains form the border between the southern states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, but are predominately within the District of Nilgiris, Tamil Nadu. Also called the blue mountain tea, this Nilgiri black tea is stronger in the cup than Darjeeling and Assam. Nilgiri tea is variously described as being light but full-bodied or well-rounded in flavour, with fruit, like citrus, and floral notes.
Single origin leaf tea when brewed, is dark colour in the cup, intensely aromatic, with lively fragrant flavours, a quality attributed to its climatic growing conditions.
