Nilgiri Frost, Wellback Estate
- Whole number only
When the sun loses some of its strength in December, January and February and the air develops a crisp chill that lasts through till spring, the tea bushes of Nilgiri grow much more slowly and the flavor of the tea changes dramatically. These frost teas are noted for their sweet intense fruitiness that is reminiscent of the muscatel notes of the best First Flush Darjeeling combined with the peach pit notes of fine oolongs. We have several dedicated customers who can’t wait until the arrival of this unique tea each spring.
