A flavorful tea

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

Best Served : Anytime.

From the gardens of Billimalai comes another flavorful tea. Although not in the same class as their green or white teas, this oolong tea is bursting with the classical Nilgiri tea flavors. Recommended only if you love Oolongs (not for me though).
