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.

Caffeine

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

Pricey but Delicious

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.

I have a cupboard full of Republic of Tea of teas but this is undoubtedly my favorite. I save it for Sunday brunch in a special tea pot. It is both smooth and mellow yet full bodied and rich. I typically use a fair amount of sweetener with my tea but not Frost. It is sweet as is.

SMOOTH

This tea is wonderful. I enjoy the strong flavors this tea brings. The cinnamon and cardamon is a great flavor combination and you can taste all the elements of the tea. Not to mention, the loose leaf tea looks beautiful.
