Nilgiri Flowery Orange Pekoe Black Tea is a Southern Indian tea with mellow body and a delicate, smooth flavour. It has a brisk liquor.
Nilgiri tea is generally described as being a dark, intensely aromatic, fragrant and flavoured tea grown in the southern portion of the Western Ghats mountains of Southern India. It is grown in the hills of the Nilgiri District of Tamil Nadu though there are numerous other tea-growing districts in South India as well, including Munnar and Central Travancore, further south in Kerala state.
India is one of the world’s largest producers of tea in the world, with three main speciality teas: Assam, Darjeeling and Nilgiri.
The tea gardens of Assam lie in the fertile valley of the Brahmaputra River in Northern India, bordering Burma and Bangladesh, where tropical conditions and high levels of rainfall produce teas that are traditionally strong and pungent with a rich, malty flavour. Assam is a black tea named after the region of its production. Assam tea is manufactured specifically from the plant Camellia sinensis var. assamica, most of which is grown at or near sea level and is known for its body, briskness, malty flavour, plus its strong, bright colour. Assam teas, or blends containing Assam, are often sold as “breakfast” teas. as a robust, maltier and stronger breakfast tea and usually consist of small sized tea leaves.
The area is noted for its fine black teas but it does produce very small quantities of fine green and white tea.
Historically, Assam has been the second commercial tea production region after southern China. Southern China and Assam are the only two regions in the world with native tea plants.
Darjeeling teas are grown in the foothills of the Himalayas where the cooler, moist climate produces subtle, delicately flavoured teas with a wonderful aroma. They are often referred to as the “Champagne” of teas.
The Nilgiris, or Blue Mountains, lie in the south-west of India, and produce fine flavoured teas with rounded flavours and bright liquors.
