Nilgiri Frost, its still freezing outside here in Belgium so by name the tea is ideal!
This tea is a very fresh smelling black tea but the tea leafs in dry form are green and black mixed. The smell is more grass like then you would expect from the usually malty smelling black tea’s. So i was excited to try it out!
Brewing my first cup with a teaspoon off leaf, for about 3min. The result is a bright amber light brown liquor. It tastes like no other black tea i tryed before! To me its a very light tea thats in taste is more like a floral heavy roast oolong. Very surprising to get a black tea thats so different then most others! I’m loving every sip off it especially because its overall not to expensive i paid a bit less then 10€ for a 50gram bag.
So if you want to try a fresh and a bit different black tea make sure to check this one out!
also one sidenote: just noticed that jing stocks a niligiri black without the green leaves in it, i have to try that one in the future to!
