Flowery Orange Pekoe from the Nilgiris - delicious!

Here's the latest tea added to my collection:  
Korakundah Organic Tea - Flowery Orange Pekoe
Unfortunately (for me), it's only available as loose leaves, and not bagged in tea bags.  However I wanted something unique out of a recent trip to Coonoor, and this looked really nice and was highly recommended by the store close to our hotel.

I love this tea - it's got a mild flavor, but is delicious.  Makes me want more.  I had to get one of the tea infusion strainer kind of things, as otherwise the tea leaves were floating in my cup and coming in the way.

The tea comes with the whole leaves dried up, which open up on brewing.  Add a pinch or two to a cup, and it expands to what seems like a lot of leaf.  I'm yet to try it with milk, I don't know how it's going to taste.  Any recommendations?

Here are pictures of the estate where this tea is grown:
