description

This spring pick is made in the famed twirl-style that all good Nilgiri teas have come to be associated with. Unlike Darjeeling spring teas, which taste leafy and floral, notes of fruit dominate the cup with this one. It's equally brisk but richer and juicier than most spring teas.

aroma:
Marked by notes of lily, melon rind, grape, wintergreen oil and undercurrent of forest greens
appearance:
Amber
taste:
The liquor is brisk, well balanced, feels ample in the mouth and has a distinct character to it. Subtle fruity notes similar to melon rind can be perceived immediately which gradually gives way to pronounced flavour of wintergreen oil which resonates till the finish. Bitter-sweet aroma of lily come in around the edges to make it more lively. A hint of undergrowth can be picked up in the aftertaste.
COMPLEMENTS:
Light desserts, like vanilla cake and scone, salads with creamy dressing, halloumi and tropical fruits.
