The Oothu tea garden is located on the southernmost tip of India in the middle of one of the world's most famous protected areas, the Kalakad- Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve in South India. This black tea is especially produced for TeaGschwendner according to organic principles. Mild and harmonious, red-brownish infusion. Savor a tea both bold and elegant - worthy of a Bengal Tiger.
Tip: 3g tea leaves (2 level Teelamass) per 8 oz cup of filtered, boiling water. Allow to brew 2 min.
For each 250g bag of Black Oothu sold, TeaGschwendner donates 1.00 EUR ($1.11 USD) to Kalakad Wildlife Sancturary in South India. The rainforest around Oothu and Manjolai Gardens are home and the last place of refuge for a few Royal Bengal Tigers. By buying this tea you are helping to support and save these wonderful animals.
