Nilgiri

Dark and Aromatic

Tea has grown in the Nilgiri Blue Mountains in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu since the late-19th Century. Legend has it that the first tea bushes of Camellia senensis (var. senensis) were planted there by the Chinese sent to the Western Ghats to settle on the plateau of Naduvattam. The high altitudes combines with fragrant Eucalyptus trees and spices grown in close proximity to the tea gardens give Nilgiri tea its dark colour, intense flavour and aroma.

This season's single-estate:
Cultivating and manufacturing since 1884, Craigmore Tea Estate expands over 1200 hectares of pristine tea gardens in the Nilgiri Blue Mountains of South India. Craigmore prides itself on being the first Indian tea plantation to receive a Good Agricultural Practice GLOBALG.A.P. Certification in 2013. The estates' sustainable cultivation and manufacturing practices have also been recognised by the prestigious Rainforest Alliance. A Craigmore cup of High Grown Orthodox Nilgiri tea is sure to compel your attention.

Our Classic Tins aim to promote a handful of tea gardens from Assam, Darjeeling, Kangra and Nilgiris and bring the consumer closer to the producer of their daily tea. #KnowYourTea
