Origin: Hathikuli Estate, Assam, India
Description: The Assam Supreme TGFOP (Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe) is a high-grade, whole leaf Assam displaying the classic, delightful malty notes and a warm character. Due to the large surface area of the leaves, it steeps with slightly less astringency and boldness than a broken-leaf Assam, creating a cup that is both rich and wonderfully smooth. Excellent on its own, or with a touch of milk and honey. Steeps to an earthy red sienna.
Tasting Notes: The nose of the cup has toasted notes of dried hay and hints of brown sugar. Smooth on the palate, this tea maintains a rich malt flavour quintessential to an Assam tea without the strong linger of tannins, and pleasant traces of sweet honey at the back of the palate.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
