Come on and let’s discover the world of Nilgiri Indian tea together.
While you hold your favorite mug and take a sip of Nilgiri, we will tell you what makes this beverage one of the most distinctive tasting and fragrant teas.
Produced in the Nilgiri region, in southern India, also known as the Blue Mountains, this tea enjoys the benefits of being grown in high altitudes above sea level and the perfect combination of heat, humidity and rain.
But how did Nilgiri tea reach the world?
Europeans first caught a glimpse of the Blue Mountains in 1602 with the arrival of a Portuguese priest in the region.
However, it was only two hundred years later that this magic region received its deserved attention by the British and this was mainly due to its similarities with the European climate.
The tropical weather helped transform this mountainous location into a summer resort in the 19th century, which later opened its doors to the first tea plantations.
Unlike other Indian teas, Nilgiri tea leaves are plucked throughout the entire year, being the best crop the one that takes place between December and March.
The tea leaves are mostly from the camellia assamica variety, but it is also common to use leaves from the Chinese camellia sinensis, especially when this tea is used to make Chai tea.
This tea can be made by using either the orthodox method, which simply involves the rolling of the Nilgiri leaves or the CTC method (crush, tear and curl) created in 1930’s.
When using this latter technique, the leaves are rolled onto jagged rollers, where they are crushed, torn and curled until they are ready for the final drying and brewing.
Nowadays, more than 80% of the Nilgiri Indian tea is produced this way, especially when it is destined for filling tea bags or for being used in blends due to its briskness and peculiar fragrance.
