Assam TGFOP (Tippy, golden, flowery, orange pekoe) is a classic black tea loved by many who do not even know they are drinking it as it is quite often found in breakfast and afternoon blends. For the purists though this Assam tea is ideal as the traditional taste shines through and is instantly recognisable as one of the most famous teas in the world.
Assam is named from the tropical region of Assam in India where it is grown. It is grown from the Assamica variation of the Camellia Sinensis primarily in the lowlands (whereas Darjeeling teas are grown higher up). Assam teas are generally associated with a malty taste and our Assam TGFOP does not disappoint.
It has finely twisted leaves with occasional golden tips, and brews to a colour of golden reddish brown.
