Nilgiri green is radical take on the traditions of the area - made from the the same harvest as the Coonoor, but produced as a green tea in a traditional Chinese style. What follows is a brassy, dense, and verdant tea that shines with notes of pomegranate and orchid. Our ferment accentuates the complex tannic structure of the tea and brings it’s features together in an experience not unlike a skin-contact riesling. We aim for still, but there might be a little carbonation after a trip.
Think: peach skin, heart of palm, and wild flower.
