First holiday dinner down, one to go. Such a full tummy. This is a good tea to wrap up the day with.

Lighter than standard blacks, this has a dryness that builds after a few cups. A nice, refreshingly clean taste. A good, uncomplicated way to round out the evening and prepare for the cooking marathon tomorrow. :)

I was just doing some research to find some good Nilgiri teas, since I’ve never had any, and I think I’d like them. I might start with this one…haven’t found too many on here that have been reviewed much yet.

I like Nilgiris. This is not a bad one to try. Pretty much all of Harney’s teas are good representatives of the types. Even if they aren’t my personal thing, their teas always seem to be good quality at reasonable price points. If I had some Nilgiri on hand I’d offer to send you some. :)

Nicole

Havukal is a Nilgiri estate as well. If you want samples, you might try Upton Teas. They have several Nilgiris and they do inexpensive samples. Except for the Havukal. :)

Mike

Awesome, thanks so much! I like the Ceylon and India Tea from Harney & Sons, and I have a bunch of other black teas from them on my wish list…seems like they make some quality stuff for what you pay. I’ll take a look into Upton Teas also! I read about Nilgiri teas earlier today and thought “wow, I need to give them a try!” Thanks for the recommendations! :)

Nicole

Feel free to look through my cupboard; I am a big black tea fan. I’d be happy to share samples with you, just PM me what you’d like to try. No reciprocal swap needed – I am swimming in tea. :) If you like Ceylons I should send you some Amba from Single Origin.

Mike

Awesome, thanks so much, I’ll take a look! You definitely have a more extensive collection that I have, but please let me know if I have anything I can offer in return! I haven’t added everything yet, but I’m getting there. I have a Chinese lychee black tea that is pretty good…not sure how you feel about flavored black teas. I do like Ceylons…so smooth!
