Organic Nilgiri Winter Harvest Estate Tea exhibits all the body, flavor and floral character associated with the region’s top offerings. Best enjoyed with a splash of milk to open the flavor profile.
Southouse India’s Nilgiri district has truly started to shine. Situated at the meeting point of the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, the region offers an abundance of mountain-like terrain, waterfalls, rivers, lakes, and vast, expansive gardens of tea.
During the winter growing season - January and February, when temperatures fluctuate between 20°C (68°F) and 0°C (32°F) - Nilgiri teas hit their peak. As the north winter winds blow, tea bushes push out new shoots slowly and more deliberately than in the summer, resulting in a raw leaf with a richer, more nuanced flavor.
The entire Nilgiri District, situated in Southern India is a single-use plastic-free zone - the result of a local grassroots campaign. This means that plastic bags, sacs or otherwise on the estate have long ago been replaced with less harmful materials.
