Nilgiri Tiger Hill FBOP
Tasting Notes: brisk + malty classic black tea
Description: A medium to full-bodied black tea that is the very definition of rich and brisk. A clean flavor that is balanced with astringency and sweet maltiness in each sip. A smooth black tea with notes of honey and citrus.
Harvested in the Nilgiri Mountains of South India, aka the Blue Mountains of India, this classic black tea is one of our favorites. Since 1971, the Tiger Hill Estate has been producing high elevation teas at 5,000 - 8,500 feet. This orthodox black tea is graded in BOP, broken orange pekoe, for a faster infusion that results in a sturdy brew.
A versatile tea that works well straight up or can take milk, sugar, or honey. An excellent hot or iced tea that we recommend for all black tea drinkers. A perfect selection for those that love a strong yet brisk black tea.
