This sample came from cookies. Another Nilgiri tea to try! The leaves of my sample and much more broken than the picture implies, but they still have that light & feathery Nilgiri look about them. Color is a dark and warm chocolate brown. The leaves smell of dry, sweet hay.
This tea smells and tastes rather generic to me. When I say generic, I mean that it reminds me of unsweetened iced tea that you would get at a restaurant, or Lipton tea bags. It’s not unpleasant to drink, there just isn’t a lot of flavor aside from that plain ol’
“black tea” that I don’t know how to describe. There’s a touch of grassiness perhaps. It’s not bitter at all, and quite smooth, so it has that going for it. Overall, just not enough flavor for me!
