A full-bodied blend of Assam and Nilgiri. Assam tea is a particular type of black tea that’s well known for its rich, malty flavor and many potential health benefits.
Nilgiri tea is called the "fragrant one." It is full bodied and has a strong, but smooth and well-balanced flavor. It grows year-round and the best harvest occurs when many other great teas are dormant. Rich and delicious, there are many reasons why a great tea like this one should not be overlooked when looking at other Indian teas.
