This full-bodied tea comes from the Assam valley, in the North-Eastern region of India. The rich, fertile soil of this region gives this tea its strong liquor and robust flavour. It has a distinctly malty character that’s not overpowered by milk. Especially good in the mornings.
Measure 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup. Bring freshly drawn cold water to just under a gentle boil. Pour water over tea and cover with a lid. Steep the tea for 3-4 minutes, depending on strength desired, and then strain. Nilgiri tea can be enjoyed black or with a spot of milk.
