• Nilgiri Silver Needle White Tea

    This is a gorgeous, fragrant, and refreshing 2022 harvest white tea from the Nilgiri Mountains in the Tamil Nadu state of southern India.  Drinking this white tea feels like you've just stepped into a cool stream after a hike on a warm day.  Overall the experience is delicate and aromatic, with notes of wildflowers and ripe tropical fruits.   

    Nilgiri teas are harvested year round, like Sri Lanka (which is nearby), with late winter harvests such as this one being most prized.  Tea is grown among Eucalyptus and Cypress trees, which are said to impart some of their aromas to the tea plants.
