Description: This classic Assam Breakfast FBOP (Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe) has a bright, robust cup while still maintaining smoothness. Due to the broken leaf style of processing for this tea, it steeps to a bold, rich sienna. A wonderful, strong breakfast tea with a classic lingering malt. Sweet musk meets the nose and the tongue with notes of deep caramel. The finish is clean and crisp.

Tasting Notes: A rich and bold black tea with notes of dark brown sugar and a rich malt astringency at the front of the palate. Crisp finish. Fantastic with milk and honey. 

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.


China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
