Nilgiri - Glendale OP
An excellent quality Nilgiri with a superb flavour and jammy character. Glendale is one of the premiere tea estates of the Nilgiri district and noted for its superb flavor with hints of jammy character. This quality is only available in January and the average price during this time is generally between 2 to 3 times the price at other times of the year. Glendale is a large tea estate for the Nilgiri district. The estate covers nearly 2 square miles (1181 acres/465 hectares) of which 1.5 square miles or 900 acres is under tea cultivation. The majority of the estate is clonal which accounts for the high quality of this tea. Clonal means that the majority of the bushes come from about 3 or 4 'mother bushes'. The mother bushes were selected because they made the best quality tea - clearly evident in the cup. The estate employs nearly 2500 people and if you consider the average family size is 4 the estate supports nearly 10,000 people certainly a large social responsibility.
