From north eastern India, PekoeBrew Assam TGFOP1 (or Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe 1) is classic and bold. What's with all the letters and numbers you say? Well 'Tippy Golden' indicates an abundance of flowering buds that turn golden upon oxidation, while 'Flowery' refers to the slightly floral aroma which is released by the buds. All this translates to a first sip offering a lovely mid palate experience, while just moments later the bold but smooth aftertaste in this cup provides the clincher. Being direct from the plantation, the PekoeBrew Assam TGFOP1 equals happiness. Just ask Kate, as this is her favourite... particularly with a slice of Red Velvet Cake. The combination of the bold tea and the sweet creaminess of the cake is a match made in heaven.
PekoeBrew Assam TGFOP1 can be enjoyed black by bringing your water to 95 degrees Celsius and brewing for just on 3 minutes. With an extra minute of brew time the flavour will develop to be even more bold and will happily carry some milk and sugar for the perfect afternoon pick me up.
