Nilgiri Tiger Hill tea: one of the most respected Nilgiri gardens.

At an altitude of 8,500 ft the weather is perfect for growing the best tea. Nilgiri Tiger Hill tea is well made with a little tip producing a full, brisk flavour with medium body and a certain aromatic, floral quality. Superb. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for three minutes. Can be drunk with or without milk.

    Service: Nice friendly company. Would like to try some of their other teas, would they consider smaller taster packs or a verity pack of taster teas to buy.

  14. Raymond Fulton (verified owner)

    Product: Third purchase. My favourite Grey’s tea. Medium bodied, complex flavour. Takes milk well. Good all rounder.
    Service: Prompt service. Well presented packaging.

  15. cjh (verified owner)

    Was really impressed with this tea. The flavour is complex, but not over-bearing. Strangely, there seems a note akin to hoppiness on the finish. A welcome brew for any time of day, and certain to become a regular.

  16. David Marlow (verified owner)

    Service: ….puzzling why they first said our order had been cancelled
    Vendor response: I am sorry for the confusion. Two orders had been received from you, one with no payment which was automatically cancelled. We contacted you after receiving this instruction, prior to being aware of the second order.
