Picked up a India Collection from Stash for CHEAP at my local Herb Store yesterday! I think I have only had 1 of them that was included so I thought it would be a good way to try some more! This steeps VERY VERY VERY Dark Brown…almost BLACK. Almost like a coffee color. That made me think that it would be VERY strong but it’s a medium strength bagged tea instead. It’s not much for scent but it has an average malty type flavor. It’s “alright” – never bad to have on standby incase you are in a jam.

Maybe I’m used to drinking Nilgiri in blends, because while I cannot say there’s anything wrong with it, I also feel like there’s something missing.

This Nilgiri is smooth and has a light body. It feels and tastes more like a China black than an India black, though it is defintely Indian tea.

I keep waiting for a snap of astringnecy, or for something sharp, smoky, or malty.

I think this Nilgiri would blend especially well with Keemun. But, on its own, it’s a bit dull, at least to my taste. (Dull as in unsurprising, not as in stale.)
