ORGANIC Thiasola Estate SFTGFOP full-leaf Nilgiri tea from India Steeps with the OP characteristics of a Ceylon & that right touch of maltiness of an Assam.
Nilgiri tea is generally described as being a dark, intensely aromatic, fragrant and flavoured tea grown in the southern portion of the Western Ghats mountains of Southern India. It is grown in the hills of the Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu. More than 50% of Nilgiri tea is exported, and usually finds its way into blends used for tea bags. The expensive hand-sorted, full-leaf versions of the tea like the Orange Pekoe (O.P.) are more highly sought after at international auctions making it unaffordable for most locals.
