Background: The name Nilgiris translates as the Blue Mountains; a scenic mountain chain in Southern India named after a unique flowering shrub that only blossoms every 12 years covering the mountain slopes in a lush lilac-blue carpet. This top quality tea is from a small young Tea Factory strong in sustainable agriculture, ecofriendly cultivation & ethical fairtrade practices. This delightful tea is produced to the very highest standards.

Brewing guide: Great lasting flavour and strength but should not be drunk with milk. Try using just 2.5g per cup infused for no longer than 2min30secs. Re-steep the same leaves again increasing the brew time by 30secs.  Also suits Gong-fu brewing, try using 4 grams and see guide on the main black tea page.
