Tea Flavor Profile
This tea has a natural sweetness (almost fruity) profile. As the growing season and monsoon seasons are nearly identical, many compare the flavor of Nilgiri Black Tea to Ceylon-grown tea. Use Nilgiri as the base for your kombucha scobi, because the medium-bodied sweetness makes a most flavorful end product.
Nilgiri Black Tea Brewing
Brew one teaspoon leaves to one cup of 205° F good quality water for 4-5 minutes.
Nilgiri tea is one of our favorites because you may brew longer than most black teas, with no worries about becoming overly astringent.
- Please NOTE: New picture coming soon as this new batch is a full leaf, rather than a Broken Leaf!
