Splendid Afternoon Organic Tea is aromatic, awakening and delectable. Similarly to Darjeeling, it can be enjoyed and savored in the afternoon but it is also a great accompaniment to breakfast, brunch, a book or tea time.
Nilgiri tea is cultivated in the Nilgiri district of India, also known as the Blue Mountains. The Nilgiri Mountains belong to the Western Ghats mountain range. The rich natural area is home to dozens of unique flora and fauna, which has made the Nilgiri District a popular travel destination. The climate and soil composition also make it one of the best tea growing regions on the planet
Nilgiri teas tend to get overshadowed by other black tea regions such as Darjeeling and Ceylon. This region has a unique subtropical climate and high altitude that produces bold black tea with malty, floral notes and less astringency than other black teas. The tea has bold desirable flavors that are balanced in a mild body. This black tea does not have strong notes of astringency and it brews into a bright amber hue. The tea has a pleasant aftertaste that is nutty and spicy. For that reason we call it an afternoon tea, to be savored by itself, without any added milk or sugar.
