While you wait for the arrival of Northern Indian spring teas, discover this excellent harvest from the south of India. In Southern India, the Nilgiri Mountains form the country’s second biggest tea-producing region. This delicious black tea comes from quality plants, Camellia Sinensis CR 6017, grown in a garden at 1,500 to 2,000 metres above sea level using environmentally-friendly practices.

Kotagiri Frost comes from a winter plucking. The cool nights and sunny days of this season slow down the growth of the leaves, giving this tea a very rich aromatic palette. Discover this superb harvest from the south of India, which will delight lovers of spring teas from North India (Darjeeling).

This black tea stands out thanks to its vegetal, almond and floral notes, supported by a finely astringent texture that gives them a long finish.
