Aroma Assam S.F.T.G.F.O.P.

From £3.25

Assam is a region in India, which is one of the world’s largest Tea growing areas. Often sold for blending this tea is strong and packed with flavour. It has a pungent full bodied liquor and malty taste. This grade is the largest leaf which is the best quality grade and takes longer to infuse,therefore bringing out the best taste and flavour.

The introduction of Assam tea to Europe was influenced by the East India Trading Company Tea Committee,who created a hybrid plant from Chinese and Assam tea plants which was found to grow best in the humid  monsoon prone Assam region. This discovery caused the province of Assam to be turned from wild wastelands to profitable tea plantations.

S.F.T.G.F.O.P. Second Flush Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe, refers to the second picking of the season and of the high quality whole leaf tea made from the first two leaves and bud of the shoot. Together with some of the tips.

The word Orange came about from the Dutch Royal Family who were from the House of Orange. In the 1800s the company brought teas to Europe and the best of the black teas were reserved for the royal family. When it was introduced to the public, it became known as 'Orange Pekoe' because of its association with the royal family. 

In our retail store this is one of our most popular teas.
