DESCRIPTION

Assam and Darjeeling are better known for their tea than the "blue hills" of Southern India's Nilgiri region, but this is a spectacular tea nonetheless. The small, dark leaves of Thiashola's finest have a remarkably perfumey fragrance of firewood, spices, flowers and stonefruit. The clear, deep amber brew has exotic undertones of leather, fine incense, carved hardwoods and Chianti-poached stonefruits. Its bold flavor is rare for a Nilgiri, as Nilgiri teas are usually more fragrant than they are flavorful. Woody, spiced, floral and fruity flavors abound. Medium tannins, full notes of cardamom, clove and red plum, and a woody, lightly astringent aftertaste leave a lasting impression and are a clear winner with a touch of milk. Like many Nilgiris, Thiashola is exceptionally crisp, clean and floral when served iced.

This tea is certified USDA organic.

Your tea is hand packed in a resealable pouch at no additional charge. For an additional $5 you can select our new Black Triangle Signature Canister.
