The beautiful Nilgiri (Blue Hills) Mountains of India provide perfect conditions for growing quality, tasty teas. Lush forests, tropical jungles, water sources, and plentiful sunshine encourage tea bushes to thrive. Nilrigi teas are characterized as being very aromatic, intense in flavor, and very forgiving should you accidentally oversteep them. This tea is wonderful either hot or cold. As an iced tea it will give you a nearly clear beverage (usually black teas when made into iced turn cloudy!). If you enjoy making Kombucha, Nilgiri is a very good tea to use!
