This tea is deliciously smooth and slightly sweet, with a fragrant floral aroma. Black currants have a slightly sweet earthy taste, unlike other berries, and when the sweet black currant flavor is combined with our premium full bodied black teas, it gives it a very distinct taste. It is great any time of the day, hot or iced, and it complements any treat.
Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (T.G.F.O.P.) is FOP with a larger amount of tips. When these tips are in abundance, the terms 'Tippy and Golden' are attached to FOP, thus making it Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. TGFOP is the top grade of OP tea.
Flowery Orange Pekoe (F.O.P.) refers to a high quality whole leaf tea with a long leaf and good balance of tips. FOP contains fine, tender young leaves with buds (referred to as tips) and is made from the first two leaves and bud of the shoot. When harvested during the slow growth periods, these young buds have a golden tip, hence the grade 'Flowery', thus making it Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP).
