    description

    From the western ghats of Nilgiris, situated at an altitude of 5500 to 6000 feet, Havukal Tea Estate is one of the pristine tea gardens there. Known for producing exceptional winter flush teas, this tea is an incredibly aromatic black tea. A lively, medium-bodied cup that starts with subtle floral flavors, akin to yellow lilies and gardenia! Subtle tropical fruity undertones similar to cantaloupe arrive towards the middle. Light winter-green hints shore up towards the end to reveal refreshing floral accents. A memorable experience of winter flush tea.

    taste

    A lively, medium-bodied cup which starts with subtle floral flavors, akin to yellow lilies and gardenia; which coat the palate right at the start and gradually gains strength as you make your way through the cup. Subtle tropical fruity undertones similar to cantaloupe are discernible towards the middle; thereby intensifying the characters and rendering a distinctive sweet texture to the liquor. Light winter-green hints shore up towards the finish which however fade quickly to reveal refreshing floral accents; making for a memorable experience of winter flush black tea from the Blue Hills.
