Our best recommendation to use for Iced Tea. This organic loose leaf black tea brews up a delicious cup that doesn’t cloud.
The Nilgiri (Tamil: நீலகிரி, Badaga: நீலகி:ரி or blue mountains), often referred to as the Nilgiri Hills, are a range of mountains with at least 24 peaks above 2,000 metres (6,600 ft), in the westernmost part of Tamil Nadu state at the junction of Karnataka and Kerala states in Southern India. They are part of the larger Western Ghats mountain chain making up the southwestern edge of the Deccan Plateau.

This past summer I had a glass of iced tea made with Nilgiri at a local tea room. Instantly liked it – better even than Tazo’s Earl Grey tea which had been a previous favorite. It’s bright and dry. I like it strong (about a 4 minute steeping time for the loose leaf) without lemon or sugar. Now, I am living in Oregon and I’m sending back to Divinitea for my Nilgiri! They send it right out and I had it within a couple of days!
Added a bit of honey and lemon, fantastic iced tea.

I really enjoy this tea! It’s got a slight smoking taste (which I usually don’t like), but with this tea and a little bit of honey it works well.
