I am breaking out of my usual black tea variety. I think this is my first straight up Nilgiri. While it is not as honeyed or cocoa-noted as what I normally drink, this really is a good tea. It is nearly a perfect balance between the tea I usually drink and coffee. No real bitterness or astringency, just good, basic black tea. This one also comes in at a bargain. It is $5.20 for 200 grams or about 75 cents an ounce.
