Ahhh, Nilgiri, it’s been a while.
Popped into Kappy’s for a Keemun or Blue Mountain, shelves were all over the place while trying to find them, my eyes alighted on Nilgiri, a firm favourite for years.
“A pot of your finest Nilgiri, Please”
First bowl is a little watery. Shouldn’t be. Perhaps it needs more time.
Second bowl is slightly less watery.
I think there’s just not ehough tea in the pot.
6mins is a bit long to steep, but it’s getting biiter and tanniny without having the right “bite” for this tea. (3rd bowl)
At the end of the day, it’s a good tea, but it’s not been done justice here today. Wondering where the slight metallic taste is from.
