taste

The liquor is smooth, full-bodied, ample in the mouth and tastes immensely sweet and floral. It starts out clean but reveals softer, sweeter flavors towards the middle. Here, notes of waxy red flowers and fennel come through in a big way. As it nears the end, the floral nuances mellow down, revealing light leafy notes that can be picked up more clearly in the liquors aftertaste.

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).
