A floral whole leaf green tea from the high-elevation Nilgiri mountains of south India. Producers Indi Khanna and his daughter Muskan were inspired by the Chinese green tea Dragonwell, traditionally known as Longjing. They adapted the Chinese processing techniques to their Nilgiri soils, and the result is this beautiful green tea, whose leaves are flattened and pan fired.
As with all Nilgiri teas, this green is forgiving because of the green leaf's low tannin content.
