Blue Mountain High Grown Tea - The Minister of Evolution has traveled to great heights to discover this most unique and flavorful tea. Originating in the Southern Ghats Mountains in India within the Nilgiri district of Tamil Nadu, these high grown leaves (7000 ft) are tended by the Badagas, a local community of agriculturists. This tea is grown in the coldest months of winter so the leaves frequently frost over, which enhances the taste dramatically. Enjoy the fresh muscatel notes of a first flush Darjeeling, the sweet notes of an Oolong and the robustness of an Assam in this remarkable tea.


Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.

Steeping Instructions

Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

My all-time favorite tea. Another brand I used to mail-order with stopped carrying this one and I stopped doing business with them. A light flavored tea for a black tea, and hints of a floral scent. I love the aroma and taste. I only brew this one on the weekends when I have time to enjoy every sip.

This a brilliant tea though it requires a greater than average time to brew. Worth the extra wait time, however.

Really complex flavor. I really enjoyed it. It is very smooth not bitter at all. Relaxing.

My favorite teas are Darjeeling and Black Currant, preferably blended together. This Frost Tea reminds me a bit of that blend, only with the other notes of Oolong and Assam, too. I understand why it costs so much (it's rare) and I wish it was cheaper, because this has easily slid into my second favorite tea slot.

Very tasty tea

I loved the Golden Yunnan and thought I'd try this. Excellent flavor with lots of complexity. A little more floral than I expected. The first brew was the most floral with other flavors coming out in second and third brews. It's not as much a favorite as Golden Yunnan but I'm glad I tried it.
