Organic Korakundah Estate BOP | Black Tea
Description: This small particle tea has a sweet, woodsy aroma. The steeped cup is bright, fresh, and medium-bodied with hints of stone fruit. An exceptional everyday black tea.
Since this is a small particle BOP (broken orange pekoe) black tea, this tea tends to steep up pretty strong and fast. Don't be afraid to back off a little on the time or the amount of tea. This black tea is from south India, the Nilgiri region. These Nilgiri black teas are known for being mellow and are great for iced tea.
The Korakundah tea estate is at 8000' elevation, one of the highest in the world, and dates back to the early 1900's. Here's a short video that tells the Korakundah story.
