Nilgiri Frost Winter Black Tea

description

A harmonious confluence of intensely aromatic winter flush Nilgiri teas, rejoice in the sweet floral opulence of this delicious black tea blend.
Its aromatic profile is complex and varied, while the palate profile is refreshingly floral and rounded. Balanced malty nuances, alongside mild mineral hints, round out the flavors perfectly, leaving a pleasantly nutty and medium-length finish on the palate.

A smooth taste with some hints of frost

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

The dried leaves don't give off too much of an aroma but you can pick up subtle hints of dried fruit characteristic of frost flushed teas, mixed with some earthy tones. The steeped liquor is a true orange and even with my very fine infuser, I noticed some suspended particles of sediment. Once steeped there is a a grainy/cereal aroma. The taste is very smooth with some moderate astringency (mouth dryness). There are some nice perfume-like undertones and just the slightest hint of bitterness on the back end. Overall it's a pretty smooth and simple drinking experience, but has just enough play on the elements of its taste to keep things interesting and enjoyable. It has good repeat drinkability, I had two 28-ounce pots in one sitting and normally I'd be bored with a tea at that point, but didn't tire of this frost blend.

A great Winter Frost

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Afternoon.

I finally found a Frost tea that I enjoy! The aroma of the dry and brewed leaf is fruity and citrusy. I am used to stronger teas, so getting used to the lighter, more subtle flavors of the frost has been different and enjoyable. If you are new to Frost tea or just wanting to try it, have those expectations in mind and give this one a shot...

Great introduction to frost flushed tea

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime.

The dried leaves have a bold aroma of dried fruit like many winter flush teas. The steeped liquor comes out orange and has a plain scent. You can taste an undertone of a more common black tea (think of more prevalent Darjeeling and Assam offerings) but there is subtle flowery sweetness on the finish of each sip. I disagree with the previous review, as the main attraction of winter flush teas is a more delicate, sweet, and flowery taste. This tea is in keeping with that but also has more of a standard black taste than some of the other winter strains.

Not my favorite

I usually like big, full-bodied teas. I typically drink Assams or Nilgiri. This one had an aftertaste that I did not care for.
