Nimbu is Hindi for "lemon," and that, together with caramel flavor, is what we added to a fine Darjeeling to get this wonderful tea. Light and delicious, it features a citrus aroma and is slightly sweet.


Black tea, caramel flavor, grapefruit flavor.

 Details: It is hard to find a flavored tea that starts with a good Darjeeling tea as the base. So Mike decided to make one, and it came out to be a light and delicious tea. It was only fitting to give it the Hindi name for lemon: nimbu.
 Dry Leaves: Darjeeling is the base for this tea, so there are flakes of green amongst the medium brown leaves.
 Liquor: The liquor is medium to dark brown with a distinct reddish tint.
 Aroma: Indian Nimbu smells of citrus with a slightly sweet side.
 Flavors: Indian Nimbu is both sweet with a caramel flavor and slightly bitter with a hint of grapefruit.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied
 Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212¬ļ
