Description

Nilgiri Tea FBOP Paralai comes from the South Indian Paralai Tea Estate. It is a Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe Tea with a strong character and exceptional taste, boasting qualities similar to Ceylon Tea.

Smooth from start to finish, this delectable infusion is a delight to the senses. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring not only quality but also consistency. 

But did you know there are also health benefits to be had from drinking any type of Black Tea? This, of course, includes this Nilgiri Tea, which can promote weight loss, improve cardiovascular health and even reduce diabetes risks. Furthermore, it can support the immune system, aid digestion, relieve stress and enhance cognitive function. What’s not to like? 

About Nilgiri Tea

Nilgiri Tea FBOP Paralai grows near Valparai in Coimbatore District, Tamil Nadu State, at elevations of 1,100-1,200 metres above sea level. The unique climatic conditions of the area, coupled with the fertile soils, make for truly remarkable Tea. However, this particular beverage is but one of dozens of Nilgiri Tea types, all of which have something extraordinary to offer. 

The word “Nilgiri” derives from the Sanskrit language, translated to mean “blue hill”. This name refers to the blueness of the Nilgiri Hills when, once every 7-12 years, Kurinji flowers blossom and carpet the landscape with vibrant colour.

Today, Nilgiri is the third-largest Tea-growing region in the country - despite few people knowing about it! 

Unlike most Tea-growing regions in India, workers often harvest the leaves throughout winter, thus creating so-called “Frost Teas”. Approximately 80% of the cultivars used are Camellia sinensis var Assamica, similar to Assam and Kenya Tea. When it comes to processing the leaves, the CTC (“cut, tear, curl”) manufacturing method is the most common. 

Nilgiri Tea FBOP Paralai is one such example of a CTC-made infusion, while also noted for being an excellent orthodox leaf. Why not discover its finer qualities today? Buy from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company and make the most of your morning cuppa.
