    Have you ever wondered what people who have tea companies give each other for Christmas? This is the one Chris gets for Heidi.

    We are pleased to be able to offer this rare tea--it's Heidi's favorite. Nilgiri is a region in southern India where frosts are fairly rare. When there is a frost, they harvest this special tea. The short days and frost concentrate the flavor creating a truly unique and luxurious tea.

    Rare single estate tea.

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz. cup. Steep at 212 degrees for 7-8 minutes.

    $6 for 1 oz. (loose leaf, not in pyramids)

    A Rare Gem!

    <p>The first thing I noticed were the amazingly long tea leaves that filled my ceramic strainer. The next thing I noticed was the long steep time that is recommended: 7-8 minutes at a water temp of 212º. I love strong tea, so this appealed to me even more. During that time, the leaves unfurl and consume the strainer with full leaves of Nilgiri tea. Love that.</p><p>The color of the brew is a lovely caramel, brown shade. The flavor? RICH is the best way for me to describe it. In fact, I’d call it the cashemere of tea…if anyone were to ask.</p><p>I can see why Heidi from Tozy Tea enjoys this. Knowing that it’s only harvested after a rare frost in the Nilgiri region means that it is a very special tea indeed and one I’m glad I had a chance to share with my online tea friends in over Michigan. Cheers!</p>

    Love this!!!

    <p>This is my new favorite! I love the mild flavor and touch of sweetness. I have 2 cups almost every afternoon.</p>
