This is a nice, straightforward black tea. I didn’t pick up much astringency. It has a wonderful sweetness to it. It’s rich on the tongue. My friend who just visited the Nilgiri Mountains said this tea was just okay. This tea is my first experience of the regional Indian tea.
She gave me 500g of different types of Nilgiri teas, so I should have a better opinion on it later! But from this sample I had, it’s quite good. Very different from the assams and ceylons I’ve had.
