These large, dark, metallic leaves come from the blue mountains of the Nilgiris, in Southern India. It is a stunning example of a tea from this category and is sure to please fans of light and aromatic black teas. Fruity (candied papaya, peach) and lightly floral (osmanthus) bouquet.

On the palate, the bright liquor shows well-structured tannins and possesses spicy (pepper, coriander seed), fruity (orange zest, preserved fruit) and slightly malty aromas.

The soft finish is long with nicely balanced fruity tannins.

Dynamic and passionate, the Camellia Sinensis team is proud to take on a new role in the industry (producer), with the Tea Studio.

The Tea Studio is a factory in the Nilgiris in India, created in collaboration with a group of Indian partners.
We joined forces with our respective expertise to propel this innovative project managed entirely by a local team of women.

An inspiring project instilled with the same values as our tea houses.
