When the sun loses some of its strength in December, January and February and the air develops a crisp chill that lasts through till spring, the tea bushes of Nilgiri grow much more slowly and the flavor of the tea changes dramatically. These "frost teas" are noted for their sweet intense fruitiness that is reminiscent of the muscatel notes of the best First Flush Darjeeling combined with the peach pit notes of fine oolongs. We have several dedicated customers who can't wait until the arrival of this unique tea each spring. If you are a black tea lover who wants to move to oolongs, this is the tea for you!

Exceptional Oolong

Oolong for those who prefer theirs a bit more oxidized. Short on the earthy, sweet taste of many oolong teas, this has the body and substance of a slightly woody black, with oolong flavor firmly planted in each sip. One of the best oolong teas I have ever tasted. Expensive as it may be, it's worth trying.
