NIJIRI BLACK ORCHID TEAYoung Mountain Tea
This well-shaped tea begins with a heavy aroma of dried plums followed by notes of bright, tart Asian pear balanced against comforting, sweet red beans. It is a whole-leaf black tea, with more weight and heft than is common for the Nilgiri region in India’s southernmost mountains, where the teas are known to be less bitter, and difficult to over-steep. Nilgiri Black Orchid was developed by Tea Studio, a producer and educational space currently operated exclusively by a team of women who are rethinking every aspect of tea production as well as creating opportunities for more small growers to gain the skills needed to make high-quality teas.
