Neelamalai Winter Black is a lightly-oxidized black tea with bright, smooth flavors. Many black teas are bright but very bold. This black tea achieves a bright, tangy flavor but with a mild, smooth liquor. Refreshing and easy-drinking, with a great cooling aftertaste.

Aromatic, with notes of bergamot orange, and sweet-tart raspberries. The aftertaste is cool and refreshing, with the faint, lingering flavor of spearmint.

Grown at high-altitude, the leaves are fragrant and yield complex flavors. The liquor is a golden red, and beautifully clear.

The plants are grown under abundant shade, and are cultivated with Indian panchagavya techniques. The use of panchagavya is said to impart a more fruity, earthy aspect to tea leaves. The leaves are handpicked, and processed carefully by the dedicated team at Neelamalai Organics, led by teamaker Murali Subramanian.
