While in Kotagiri, perched high in the Nilgiris, most evenings the talk turns to tea, the weather and the prices of green leaves in Kotagiri. Nothing much has changed. Tea is still top dog. A small difference though, planters these days are not English, Scottish or Irish; they are Tamilian, Kannada, or Malayalee. The story of tea from the Nilgiris has been told numerous times and yet it hasn’t lost its charm. Nilgiris tea is generally described as being a dark, intensely aromatic, fragrant and flavoured tea grown in the southern portion of the Western Ghats Mountains of Southern India.
Nilgiri tea has a lot of benefits as well, with just the right amount of caffeine, this low-calorie beverage helps you lose weight, and who wouldn’t want that? Worried about your insatiable sweet tooth? This tea can reduce sugar cravings and help prevent diabetes. Tea from the Nilgiris has lots of antioxidants which can make your skin look and feel younger. Feeling stressed out? Nilgiris tea has the ability to lower cortisol, the stress hormone, in your body and help you relax and calm down. Imagine this, sitting in the sprawling garden of your Isprava luxury holiday home, looking out over the peaks of the Nilgiris while sipping on a hot cup of (Nilgiris) chai. What about this, have you ever dreamt of owning your own tea estate or getting access to tea leaves as soon as they are plucked? Our Isprava homes are situated in and around tea esates so you may be able to fulfil these dreams sooner than you expected!
The weather in the Nilgiris is among the best in the world, and National Geographic can attest to that. The cool and pleasant climate is like a breath of fresh air (quite literally) compared to the heat and humidity of the city.
