Assam Supreme TGFOP

Regular price $5.00

Style: Black

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.

Organic

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.
