Nilgiri teas are forgiving things. In conversation, teas from this region are often over-shadowed by their neighbors, Darjeeling and Assam, but they don’t mind any more than they mind harsher steeping methods. Meaning “Blue Mountain,” Nilgiri teas are grown along the southern mountain ranges of India, and brew fantastically brisk and bright cuppas that take active effort to get a bad steep out of. Our Nilgiri is a blend of several of the best showings of the season, offering a fragrant tea full of refreshing flavor, and makes one of the best iced teas around to boot.
- Pairs well with bleary eyed mornings, jams and jellies, and just about anything when iced.
- Steep Time: 200°-212° for 4 minutes
