Nilgiri Special Winter Black Tea

description

A medley of Nilgiri black tea and Assam black tea - this blend features an impressive soiree of flavors.
The velvety infusion has a refreshingly floral aroma and a strong, rounded taste. Look for top notes of malt and nuts, which linger on your palate long after you finish the tea.

Spinach Orange Nutty Malt (Balanced)

Likes : Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime.

Dry leaves have a bright orange-like aroma (suggested on packet), and develop a more spinach-like aroma when brewed. I love the orange aroma, which I can almost taste on the palate as well. It has a balanced malty flavor and a good aftertaste. I liked it.

Citrusy Aroma, Nutty Taste

Best Served : Morning.

I would consider this a great alternative to a morning tea for those who feel that Assam is too strong. This has a great aroma and is very smooth on the palate. This could become a regular to add to the morning routine...

Delicious, extraordinary flavors.

Best Served : Morning.

Long lasting flavor that has a strong aftertaste. Leaves a fresh taste on my palate. No bitter notes even though the flavor is intense. It has very unique flavor profile that left me wanting more. This tea provides a nice caffeine kick first thing in the morning and the leaves are strong enough to survive multiple steepings. I like to drink it with a sugar cube, but it is good with sugar and without.

An interesting tea

Likes : Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Evening.

This tea was a free sample that I got with another purchase. The dry leaves have a lovely Floral-malty aroma - an odd combination. When steeped, sweet aromas of dark fruits and floral notes emanate, slowly followed by vegetal notes. The liquor is crisp, but can get bitter if oversteeped. Surprisingly the wonderful fruity-floral notes which predominate on the nose give way to the vegetal-malty notes on the palate. While that is not bad, it would have tasted exceptional if the floral notes persisted.

Extraordinary, unique flavors

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Exotic fruit/floral/perfume flavors (lychee?), long lasting, fresh taste. Not bitter despite its strength of flavor. Delicious-- it left me wanting more. Good with sugar and without. 185 deg F (85 C), 2 g per 235 ml, 5 min

A strong tea for a winter day

Likes : Smooth Body.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

This tea had a strong floral aroma (perhaps orange blossom?) and a sweet malty taste which revealed secondary notes of candied orange and perhaps something vegetal. There was dryness in the finish fading into a lingering nutty flavour. A strong tea but not bitter at all. A second infusion was much more delicate with notes of orange and a lingering nutty aftertaste.
