Nilgiri teas are bright and with a natural sweetness reminiscent of honey. They are considered the best for making sun teas and iced teas because they are lower in tannins and difficult to over-steep.
Nilgiri teas grow year-round in India’s high-elevation tropical mountain range. While the land under cultivation is only slightly larger than Darjeeling, production is four times as high. Similar to Darjeeling, the area was first developed as a hill station for British soldiers to escape the hot Indian summers. Tea was first planted in 1835 and has flourished since then.
Unique to the Nilgiris, 70% of cultivation is done by independent small growers who typically own less than a hectare. They sell their harvested green leaf to factories for processing.
March Special: Nilgiri Green Swords $1
Indi Khanna (pictured above) is known for producing daring new teas from the Nilgiris.
This month try his Green Swords. This tea was inspired by the Chinese green Dragonwell, and is made by flattening and then pan frying the leaf.
Add this tea for $1 using the coupon code swords1 (select the 1oz size).
