Nilgiri refers to the area the tea is grown in, amongst the Nilgiri or Blue Mountains in the south of India. Kala Moti describes the leaves of this very special tea, and literally translates as black pearls, hinting at its exotic, precious quality. Grown at an altitude of over 2,000 metres, 6,500 feet, the leaves produce a soft, delicate tea that is full of flavour.
Instantly refreshing, Nilgiri Kala Moti is a great thirst-quenching tea that makes you want to drink cup after cup.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
