NILGIRI (India) Tiger Hill Estate FBOP
Tiger Hill is a top estate in the Nilgiri district of South India. The soil and climatic conditions produce very distinctive teas. This Jan. production tea has a flavor profile that is unbelievable. You will taste a fruit-like floral character with satisfying thickness. What causes this flavor?? – the sun shines more intensely, there are fewer clouds, the temperature is cooler and there is virtually no rain – the perfect conditions for stunning tea.
Tiger Hill has been producing tea only quite recently. This partially accounts for its high quality. Virtually all the tea on the estate is clonal. Clonal tea means that the majority of the tea bushes come from about 3 or 4 ‘mother bushes’. The mother bushes were selected because they made the best tea with above average yield with the best teas produced during January and August.
