Advent Tea Calendar Day 14
Origin: India, Nilgiri
Product Description: A delicious full-bodied black tea from southwest India, Nilgiri is a lesser known region than India's more popular growing areas of Assam and Darjeeling. The environmental conditions in Nilgiri are perfect for growing quality, tasty teas. Perfect hot or iced.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes
The dry leaf aroma is spicy with notes of dried plum.
The red infusion has an aroma of tart fruit with a moderately astringent flavor and a clean chestnutty finish.
While this had the astringency I would expect from black teas of this region, I was pleased to find that it is quite enjoyable and flavorful on its own. One steeping is all you will need to extract the full flavor.
