Nilgiri tea is a dark, intensely aromatic and flavorful tea grown in the southern portion of the Western Ghats mountains of Southern India.
Tea plantations only account for around 30% of tea production in Nilgiri District. The vast majority of production is undertaken by small growers, who typically own less than 2.5 acres each.
Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.
