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. Kosher.

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 to give it the Hindi name for lemon: Nimbu.
Darjeeling is the base for this tea, so there are flakes of green amongst the medium brown leaves.
The liquor is medium to dark brown with a distinct reddish tint.
Indian Nimbu smells of citrus with a slightly sweet side.
This tea has a medium body.
Indian Nimbu is both sweet with a caramel flavor and slightly bitter with a hint of grapefruit.
