about the Nilgiris tea

Our teas come from the Nilgiri region in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, in the mountain range within the Western Ghats. A home to some of the finest tea plantations in the world, the Nilgiris, also known as the “Blue Mountains”, are famous for picturesque landscapes and uniquely dark and strongly aromatic tea. The Nilgiris region has a cooler temperature than surrounding areas due to the elevation, making it ideal for growing tea. Because of its altitude and distinct wet and dry seasons, the tea of Nilgiri differs greatly from others grown in well-known locations like Assam or Darjeeling.

The tea produced by the estates in Nilgiri offers a mellow and clean liquor and fine and distinct flavor, which is derived from the high elevation ranging from 6,000 to 8,000 ft. Considered a blender’s dream, Nilgiri teas give the liquor extra body and strength.

Numerous tea estates and factories in the area expertly produce superior white (also known as Silver Needle), oolong, green as well as black teas of various grades, including fine orange pekoe and fannings.
