This is a lovely tea that I discovered over 30 years ago and Mark T. Wendell has graciously brought it to his store for me. I am very grateful! (Posted on 10/25/2017)

Overall Character
ur rating as "medium-strong" in body reflects brewing a sample for 5 minutes; recommend 4 minutes. "Faint citrus notes" are too faint to taste; this is not a floral tea. It is deep amber in color, quite brisk, and takes milk well. It is a good candidate for first-cup-of-tea-in-the-morning. Original Review Submitted: 9/4/11 (Posted on 10/25/2017)

Nilgiri Tiger Hill Estate

Situated in southern India’s Blue Mountains, the Tiger Hill estate produces some of Nilgiris best teas. Slowly growing in this areas high elevation climate and fertile soil, the predominantly clonal Nilgiri bushes produce refreshing teas with faint citrus notes. This medium-bodied tea produces a bright, brisk liquor with a light, clean flavor that really stands out in each cup.

Brewing Tips: Nilgiri tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Nilgiri tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
