"Maybe not my favorite tea overall, but this is easily the best Nilgiri I've ever had. The peppery notes remind me a bit of a Yunnan, but it's more astringent, with what I suppose is the rose mentioned in the description. Unlike a Yunnan, though, don't oversteep this one! Will definitely order it again."
