Origin: Korakundah Estate, Nilgiri Region, India

Description: Located in Tamil Nadu State (formerly Madras State) in India, the Nilgiri district is found in the southern portion of the Western Ghats Mountains. Nilgiri, which translates to Blue Mountain, is a class of tea on its own (much like Assam) and is known to be bold, aromatic and flavourful, and grow at least 1,000 meters above sea level. Korakundah Estate is one of the higher elevated tea estates in the Nilgiri region. This estate, established in the 1930’s, it is the first to obtain Organic Certification in the area. A great choice for those who enjoy a cup of black tea but need an option with limited caffeine. Decaffeinated using the organic swiss water method.

Tasting Notes: An auburn-gold liquor in the cup, this decaffeinated black tea begins delicately. As you continue sipping, the tea starts to layer in gentle astringency, covering the palate with malt and brassy, earthy notes.  

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.


*Decaffeination process does leave trace amounts of caffeine. If you have an allergy, or are highly sensitive to caffeine, a herbal tisane could provide a completely caffeine-free alternative.

China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
