From the Nilgiri region in southern India, this organic and fair-trade garden dates from 1858 and was planted by Chinese prisoners of the opium war with England.
Nilgiri which can be translated by Blue Mountains because of the mist which bathes the mountains, culminates between 1000 and 2635 meters. The climate favors the cultivation of tea. This fine harvest (T.G.F.O.P.) gives us brown leaves, twisted and regular.
They offer a copper liquor, bright, full-bodied and a little bitter.
The flavor is refreshing and combines the woody and lemony notes of certain Ceylon with the fresh and flowery aromas of a Darjeeling.
Nice length on the palate, a little honeyed.
