Nilgiri Frost Special Edition Tea

Product Code: 004134
India, Black, Connoisseur, Limited Edition, Organic, 50g

A special tea from the Blue Mountains of Nilgiri. Although Camelia Sinensis is not fully frost hardy, a touch of overnight frost increases the natural sugars in the leaves as part of the plant's natural defences becoming one of the features of Frost tea.

Then quickly harvested and processed the morning after the night of the frost, the leaves make an unusual crackling noise as they defrost rapidly in the heat whilst withering. The speedy processing helps retain subtle aromas that might otherwise be lost.

Floral with citrus tones, this delicate tea resembles a Darjeeling and is only produced in limited batches given the conditions required.
