This olive / khakhi green coloured tea, is from Korakundah estate, established in 1922 at an elevation of approximately 8,200 feet and is one of the highest tea gardens in the world and one of the first Nilgiri tea garden to be certified organic and they also implement fair labour practices for their workers. When infused the tea has an excellent aroma and taste, with hints of straw and a toasty, minty nuance to it, probably from the Nilgiri/ eucalyptus trees available around the estate, ending with a slightly astringent finish.
The tea and leaf, as the name suggest’s look white and are probably the most prestigious and romantic of all types of teas. This delicate tea is perfect for small celebrations or as personal pick-me-up.
Fruits, herbs, and edible plants infused in boiled water make many lovely beverages called “Tisanes" (in French). Also known as herbals, these contain no tea and no caffeine and are meant to boost overall wellness.
A powdered green tea that is bursting with flavors and antioxidants, Matcha tea is the gold standard of wellness teas. Prepared using a whisk to froth the tea in warm water, having Matcha is a ceremony in itself.
