There is a wonderful fresh aroma and taste to this leaf. It is lovely and smooth. I like how well it steeps, you can get a light-medium strength easily to suit your mood. Despite leaving it in longer than usual once I never got any bitterness, which is a great characteristic of Nilgiri. It brought a great malt flavour.

I find it perfect for times when everything around is a bit hectic and scattered. The refreshing flavour and smoothness seem to wash all hassle away!

A nice tea,
Very delicate flavour,
Works well served gong-fu style, during multiple infusions the flavour went from a woody earthiness to a slight persimmon-esque flavour.

Although I prefer the company’s Tie Guan Yin to this.

I always enjoy this tea,
I usually make it western style but today as I only had a small amount left I made it gong-fu style and it revealed a hidden depth of floral flavour that the western style seems to lack.

Just thought I’d write this as it was slightly disappointing that Northern Tea Merchants had nothing yet listed,
I buy most of my tea from them and it is always of the highest quality.
