THIASHOLA CARRINGTON ESTATE ORGANIC BLACK TEA
Infusion Time: 4 mins
Caffeine Level: Medium
DESCRIPTIONAssam 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.
