Although I’ve heard it said that Nilgiri is not particularly to the taste of most English people, I’ve always been a fan. I grew up with it, and consider it to be the king of black teas (apart from Darjeeling, of course, which I really consider to be in a class of its own).

And of the Nilgiri’s I’ve tried, I consider this to be the best. I have it with breakfast every day, sans milk, of course (although it’s also fine with). It’s rich, nutty and aromatic, with a depth of complexity and several layers of tone. It’s very robust, but not at all bitter; there are no harsh tannins that one often detects from a strong black tea. Smooth and refreshing.
