drank Nilgiri by Dominion Tea
218 tasting notes

I am still on the lookout for a good Nilgiri after the three quite unremarkable ones that I previously tried. This one from Dominion Tea is the first Nilgiri that at least has some character and interest.

It has large attractive leaves with a pleasant smell when dry. The tea itself is also aromatic with earth, flower and tropical fruit notes. The taste largely mirrors the aroma with some unavoidable Assamica bite. The aroma and taste hold well after several steepings. Overall, not a bad tea for someone who digs Indian teas (which I am mostly not).

Flavors: Earth, Floral, Tropical, Vanilla

I like to drink teas to recreate a specific mood, or just to take a break at work. The world of tea is so endless, patiently waiting for exploration and rewarding you in many ways big and small.

I am looking forward to years of playing with tea leaves, gaiwans, cups, and YouTube videos.

My ratings:

90 or more – a very good/excellent tea, I can see myself ordering it again.

80-89 – it is a good tea, I enjoyed it but not enough to reorder.

70-79 – an OK, drinkable tea but there are certainly much better options even in the same class/type.

60-69 – this tea has such major flaws that you have to force yourself to finish what you ordered.

<60 – truly horrible teas that must be avoided at all costs.
