Nilgiri Tiger Hill FBOP
Tasting Notes: brisk + malty classic black tea
Description: A medium-bodied black tea that is the very definition of 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 medium-bodied black tea is one of our house 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 that we recommend for all black tea drinkers. A perfect selection for those that love a strong yet brisk black tea.
