Brewing instructions


Assam Dimakusi Tea TGFOP1 comes from the Dimakusi Estate in Assam, India. The garden has produced extraordinary-tasting infusions since its founding in 1900, with this one being no exception.

When brewed, expect malty notes considered somewhat stronger than other Assam Tea types. It is indeed a remarkably hearty brew from start to finish, which, naturally, is to the taste of many Tea enthusiasts!

Its strength extends to its caffeine content, too, with an 8-oz cup boasting 45-mg of this stimulating chemical compound. That should be more than enough to get you out of bed in the morning, thus enabling you to start the day the right way.

Perhaps best of all, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company pack Assam Dimakusi Tea TGFOP1 fresh to order. What’s not to like?

What Does “TGFOP1” Mean?

The phrase “TGFOP1” stands for “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe,” a grade of many remarkable qualities. “FOP”, in particular, denotes Tea made from the top bud and the first two leaves of each new shoot.

They contain young, tender leaves with a balanced amount of ‘tip’ and ‘bud’. “TG”, meanwhile, means it has an especially high content of golden tips.

The Dimakusi Tea Estate

This garden was established on February 15, 1900, under the Williamson Magor Co. Ltd. It lies near the Bhutan hills located to the north, the rivers Kala and Nonai to the northeast, and the township of Khairbari to the southwest.

Further west, meanwhile, is the similarly prestigious Borengajuli Tea Estate. Dimakusi, has, since its founding, produced some of the tastiest Assam Teas in the region.

A Brief History of Assam Tea

Assam Tea (and Indian Tea as a whole) was discovered by a Scotsman named Robert Bruce during the 19th century. It was his brother, Charles Alexander Bruce, who confirmed the findings, at which point the potential for a local Tea industry became a reality.

Today, the state of Assam produces around 55% of India’s total Tea output. Assam Dimakusi Tea TGFOP1 is one such example.

  3. I used to buy Dimakusi from another store and loved it. I bought this one expecting it to be much the same, but it was a revelation in flavour terms. Just as strong (I like very strong tea) but with an incredible fruity top note as well. Delicious. So I ordered a bigger bag.
