Organic Thiashola FTGFOP1
Assam and Darjeeling are better known for their tea than the “blue hills” of Southern India’s Nilgiri region, but this is a spectacular tea nonetheless. The small, dark leaves of Thiashola Finest Organic have a remarkably perfumey fragrance of firewood, spices and stonefruit. The clear, deep amber brew has exotic undertones of leather, fine incense, carved hardwoods and Chianti-poached stonefruits. Its bold flavor is rare for a Nilgiri, as Nilgiri teas are usually more fragrant than they are flavorful. Woody, spiced, floral and fruity flavors abound. Medium tannins, full notes of cardamom, clove and red plum, and a woody, lightly astringent aftertaste leave a lasting impression. Like many Nilgiris, Thiashola is exceptionally crisp, clean and floral when served iced. This tea is certified USDA organic.
