Craigmore Classic Winter Frost Black Tea

description

You can turn to this tea to get a sense of what a typical Nilgiri tea is like. The flavors in it are somewhat entwined, making it difficult to distinguish them at first. But give the cup a few minutes and you can pick out the characteristic fruity, green notes that define most winter-picked Nilgiri black teas.
