This tea comes from the mountain of Nilgiris in southern India. Although this area is in the tropics, the mountains’ elevation makes for cold nights. So the tea plant grows very slowly and the flavor is concentrated. This tea is highly withered and lightly oxidized, makes for a very bright and brisk cup.
