Introducing, Nilgiri Jasmine Black Tea!
This is our first time selling an Indian Jasmine scented tea and it could not have been more special. Jasmine teas are the outliers in this tea drinking world, loved by all, the loose leaf drinking purists as well as the new age tisane drinker! The base black tea is of Orange Pekoe grade, made in the same estate which makes our Nilgiri Highland Black, Handmade Black and Winter Frost Teas. The scenting is done using fresh jasmine flowers and the buds are carefully and completely removed after every cycle. The fresh jasmine from Nilgiri adds a soft touch to the robust but sweet black tea. An invigorating cup, the liquor pairs well with tea time snacks like vanilla cake, sweet biscuits and croissants.
