Nilgiri tea from the Thiashola estate – a hidden gem
We were looking for a fine tea from the south of India and came across the Thiashola tea garden.
Their teas are simply amazing.
The tea has a fresh, slightly sharp-edged flavour and reminds a bit of the first season’s teas of Assam and Dooars. The leaf is multi-coloured, uneven with green spots. The cup is copper red with the scent of fresh flowers.
