Nilgiris

The Nilgiris are a range of mountains in the South Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Nilgiri means "Blue Mountains" referring to both the dense, smoky-blue mists that cloak the landscape and the stunning blue Kurunji flowers that blossom and cover the hillsides but once every twelve years. The Nilgiri region is extremely lush and green and full of wildlife. It is also home to several indigenous tribes including the ancient Toda people. The region's cool climate and consistent mist and rain create an ideal environment for tea growing. Nilgiri teas are characterized by a fruity, smooth, yet lively aroma and flavor.
