Coconut Baozhong/Tea Queens. . . .

Imagine, if you will, the joys of a honey orchid oolong, a light, fruity, pollen-y, flowery ooling. Then sprinkle the delights of coconut (my current favorite flavor) atop it.

What do you have?

Sweet, willowy, airy heaven. All of the Earth’s natural delicacies, blended together into one warm, sunny Friday medley.

Every time I sip this, I’m like “ahhhhh, so good.” I have said it aloud.

This tea makes me feel like a person sitting outside in a big, lovely white hat. I am slightly fancy. I have good taste. The air is crisp. There are mountains in the background, vibrant and green.

If I were able to sing, I might.

But I won’t subject you to that. I am a restrained and classy person.

Enjoy the tea!

Nilgiri / Tea Queens . . . .

There are three main tea growing areas; Assam, Darjeeling, and the lesser known Nilgiri. These teas come from the Southern portion of India. This is the first time I’ve tried a plain black from the region and I’m amazed at how different all three are. While Assam tends to be known for their stronger bodied teas with a punch in the face, and Darjeeling known for their muscatel and delicate flavors, Nilgiri on the other hand is somewhat a mix of both. Woodsy flavors mix with very subtle fruity notes to form a light bodied brew. It’s smooth without any astringency. This is the type of tea that is best consumed on it’s own. Food in general is not a good pairing because the flavors are so light and delicate.

Just as a side note I wanted to mentioned how impressed I am with the company that produces this tea. Burnside estates located in Kotagiri Taluk in the “Blue Mountains” of the Nilgiris in South India. They are a sustainable company focused not only on good tea but also on making sure their employees are properly cared for and the eco-friendliness of this company is superb. If you have time please go to their website and give them a look!
