Tasting Notes From the misty rolling gardens of the famous Glendale tea estate in the divine Nilgiri hills, we bring to you our Blue Mountain Nilgiri Green Tea. A rare, exotic, and unfermented green tea that is grown and harvested in the winter months.

The light golden liquor has a splendid aroma and carries notes of fresh grass, with a hint of astringency. The aftertaste is characterised by a sweet, citrusy note that lingers on the palate. A mesmerising experience!

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Does Green Tea aid weight loss?
    According to research, Green tea has been proven to be one of the healthiest beverages in the world. Besides the fact that a cup of green tea contains less than half the caffeine present in a cup of coffee, it also is rich in antioxidants called 'catechins'. One of the prime catechins present in Green tea is EGCG, which have proven to increase thermogenesis in our body. This boosts our metabolism and if combined with a healthy diet and exercise, it has a positive impact on weight loss.
  • Does Green tea contain caffeine?
    Green tea has a relatively low amount of caffeine per cup (~45 mg) compared to coffee (~95 mg). This caffeine in green tea is just enough to give you a boost, without the unwanted jitters. Hence, a great alternative to coffee.
  • Is Green Tea a good detox?
    Green tea is full of antioxidants and polyphenols which have been linked to anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects. These antioxidants, called catechins, also aid a healthy metabolism which adds to the body's innate ability to detox.
  • Where do you source your teas from?
    We source our teas from over 150 renowned tea plantations and small individual farms in India. Within the country, we procure from 5 popular tea-producing regions, namely : Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri, Kangra, and Sikkim.
  • What different ways can I brew it?
    It can be brew as hot, iced or cold brew.
  • Can we add milk to this our green tea?
    We strongly recommend not to add milk. You may add enhancements like sugar, stevia, mint to enhance the taste -
  • How are your teas packed?
    After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperature-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon receiving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.

Great green tea I ever taste.

I???m a tea lover . As far as I found this green tea , is the most tasty and fresh tea I ever drink. I usually use a Chinese traditional tea cup to taste it. Just a small amount of tea , I can enjoy a whole day long , with at least ten cups and still have a excellent taste. This is my second time to buy the tea , must have third and even more times . Great tea must try!
