description

Very rarely do you come across a tea with characters as unique and affecting as this. What we loved about this one is its many layers of classic Nilgiri ‘frost’ flavors – tropical fruit, waxy greens, white flowers. It’s complex but unassuming, ample but restrained, keeps the senses excited but flows effortlessly.

aroma:
Marked by notes of wet wood, forest floor, fruity, celery and hints of elderflower
appearance:
Light Amber
taste:
The liquor is brisk, well-rounded and feels ample in the mouth. Notes of wet wood is what greets the palate and tend to flow throughout which is interrupted by mellow notes of overripe fruit toward the middle. Subtle undertones of sweet greens can be perceived intermittently which lends a hint of astringency to the cup. The aftertaste is more pleasant with soft notes of aromatic white flowers.
