This generously rounded tea has a flavour profile that is really quite incredible. Fruit-like and floral characters are undercut with a satisfying thickness unlike any other tea. What creates this special flavour? Tiger Hill tea is only harvested during the month of January when the sun shines most intensely, the temperatures are cooler and there is virtually no rain - perfect conditions for creating stunning tea! Tiger Hill is one of the most renowned tea estates found in the Nilgiris Mountains (Blue Mountains) in the most Western part of Tamil Nadu in Southern India.The mountain range here rises to above 8500 feet, which enables tea to be grown at a high enough altitude to ensure the perfect weather for quality bushes. The soil and climatic conditions here produce very distinctive teas. Tiger Hill has been producing tea only quite recently and this partially accounts for its high quality. Virtually all the tea on the estate is clonal - clonal means that the majority of the tea bushes come from about 3 or 4 'mother bushes'. The mother bushes were selected because they made the very best tea with above average yield. The Tiger Hill Estate first began production of tea in 1971 (young by tea estate standards!) and the Estate is quite small, with 640 acres under tea cultivation, which produces about 2.2 millions pounds of tea.
