Tea Review: Indi's Gold (Young Mountain)

Indi's Gold
Young Mountain
Type: Black
Origin: India, Nilgiri
Product Description: A whole-leaf black tea from the Nilgiri Mountains.  Produced in small batches by veteran grower Indi Khanna.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 2 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of grapes, figs, oats, and seasoned wood.

The golden amber infusion has an aroma of apricot, papaya, and honey with a smooth, sweet, taste of baked fruit and a long, sweet finish.

This tea is very smooth, becoming almost velvety by the second steeping.  Second and third steepings became progressively milder while continuing to be enjoyable, with intriguing floral notes of sweet pea appearing after the first infusion.  While this tea is not currently listed on the Young Mountain website, it can be purchased from several online tea retailers.
