A smooth cup with mild astringency to start my precious Sunday. Interestingly it has a slightly savoury aftertaste.

This is a pretty average black tea, which is expected given the BOP grade. A faint raisin note, as well as loamy earth, slightly acidic. It’s strong, but leans toward the bitter and astringent side.

This tea is brisk and I am just not loving it. My tastes have evolved so that I can now enjoy straight blacks that are fruity or dessert-like but I am not quite at the point where teas like this appeal to me. Oh well. Also, I tried adding some milk and that didn’t do much for it. 284.


Best Nilgiri I’ve found is from Teabox…glendale twirl. Happy to send you a sample if you like! It really changed my mind about Nilgiris. (that looks funny plural)


Ooh. Not looking forward to this, then. I suspect we have similar back preferences.

This tea came in the Lupicia grab bag a few months ago and I was in no hurry to open it as the expiration date is sometime in 2015. Still this morning I thought I would give it a go…

The tea I got in my pouch does not look like the one in the picture on Steepster, it’s full of fine tiny broken leaves (BOP = Broken Orange Pekoe). I steeped this for 2 minutes per the package directions even though I was skeptical this would be enough time.

I got a nice dark cup that is very brisk with a citrus note. This has slightly too much tannin in it for me to really like it a lot. I can’t really drink it plain but it’s better with soymilk and sugar. Nilgiris are supposed to make good iced teas so maybe I will try it that way when the weather is warmer. Also I remember the Tao of Tea made a Nilgiri mixed with lemon myrtle that was pretty good, so perhaps lemon would be nice with this. Anyway I am not too excited about this one, it’s just kind of mediocre and reminds me of what you would get in a Lipton teabag but hopefully does the job in waking me up.
