Introducing a very special black tea from our favourite region, The Nilgiris. We cannot be happier introducing a new style of black tea from the region to mark the start of the 2023-2024 winter harvest season. A honey forward black tea crafted by our trusted teamakers in Coonoor, they make all our Nilgiri black teas except 2023 Winter Frost Black.

 

The dry leaf smells like fresh fruits and honey. When placed on the heated ware, it gives a creamy and fruity aroma and has a hint of lavender on the finish. On the first sip, you notice the creamy note upfront. The honey like sweetness is what makes it so delicious to drink, present in the dry leaf, heated leaf and liquor aroma as well. As you sip it on, you are greeted with notes of pear and a hint of ripe mango. Once you are halfway through your cup, the subtle note of lavender greets you on the finish. The sweetness of honey gets more intense once the liquor cools down even further, making the cup very enjoyable. All of these tasting notes result in one spectacular cup of tea which is almost like drinking a nectar. One of those teas we hope you try as fresh as possible, we hope you enjoy this one as much as we are!
