Situated in southern India’s Blue Mountains, the Tiger Hill estate produces some of Nilgiri’s best teas. Slowly growing in this areas high elevation climate and fertile soil, the predominantly clonal Nilgiri bushes produce refreshing teas with faint citrus notes. This medium-bodied tea produces a bright, brisk liquor with a light, clean flavor that really stands out in each cup.

I first encountered Nilgiri tea on a visit to the Kerala area of the Blue Mountains in India. I collected some Nilgiri tea there, but when I saw this one on MTW’s site I had to give it a try. This is a really fine tea with nice citrusy notes and something I can’t describe, sort of a plum taste. A medium bodied tea that lends itself to drinking without the need for milk to cut the tannin. I am not a fan of using milk in tea so this one suits me fine. I’ve had it for seven mornings not consecutively, and I really enjoy it’s beautiful difference.
