I have a fairly low opinion of Nilgiri tea, and this didn’t do anything to change that opinion. I was pleasantly surprised by the initial taste, which was clean and bright, but the flavor descended into a tannic, bitter finish. Each sip seemed to turn bitter a little bit faster. I added sweetener, but that didn’t help much.

My first Nilgiri! Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be anything special. It could be my palate or the tea’s age. The dry leaf smells slightly muscatel, but that’s about as interesting as it gets. The liquor is full-bodied but light in flavor, which is malty with a hint of smoke.

From what I understand, Nilgiri is usually “nothing special”, which is why it’s commonly used as a base for flavored teas.

Ah, OK. Doesn’t sound surprising. Beforehand, I looked up what it should taste like expected something different. Maybe what I drank was average, for Nilgiri.
