Unfortunately this tea scalded my right side and arm last night when my cat decided his catnip toy must be on the ledge of the bathtub where this was resting as I soaked. But, I was able to move beyond that after the pain subsided and pour another cup. This was really nice. The Nilgiri is lovely though I didn’t get a very strong chocolate flavour; if I hadn’t known it was supposed to be there I probably wouldn’t have guessed it. But it made a bold but smooth and enjoyable cup.

Bad tea! I actually intended to get the Vanilla Nilgiri from Chi of Tea when they did their sample deal, but it seemed ludicrous to charge 1.75 to my credit card. Anyway, I’ve been wondering – What is the Nilgiri flavour like? I’m terrible with regions (don’t pay attention, usually) but I hear such good things about Nilgiri.

I know very little about regions and am terrible at describing flavours. But, both of these were quite nice. Like I said, I didn’t get the chocolate so much and I don’t think I’ve ever had Nilgiri otherwise but liked it. It brewed up very dark but was really nice and smooth. The vanilla was wonderful! Really rich, perfect when you want something sweet but bold.
