An excellent quality Nilgiri with a superb flavour and a jammy character. Glendale is one of the premiere tea estates of the Nilgiri district and noted for its superb flavour teas. 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 1181 acres, of which 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 four, it means the estate supports nearly 10,000 people - certainly a large social responsibility!

Top Tea

Pure rounded flavour and absence of feeling of tannin. Perfect.

Excellent for a Kombucha tea mix

I mix this Nilgiri with Sencha to make a tea mix for my Kombucha. I use about 25% Nilgiri and 75% Sencha, the Nilgiri makes it deliciously floral and fresh!

Very nice tea!

I visited the Glendale tea plantation in March 2020 and saw the whole production process. I had not appreciated the difference between Orthodox and CTC tea before then. This is an Orthodox tea: it has larger leaves and produces a lighter but still flavourful brew. I was very impressed by the visit: the Nilgiri hills are beautiful and I saw elephants wandering amongst the tea bushes.
