Assam Tea Facts

Tea dates back some 5,000 years. However, Assam Tea only came into existence 200 years ago.

A Scotsman named Robert Bruce was the man who discovered Assam Tea.

During India’s independence movement, Mahatma Gandhi discouraged drinking Assam Tea due to its association with the British Raj.

Today, India is the second-largest producer of Tea after China. Assam Leaf Tea, in particular, is one of the most popular varieties available.
What Does “TGFOP1” Stand For?

The term “TGFOP1” means “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe”, a Tea 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.

Assam Mid Season Tea TGFOP1 Benefits

Although not yet proven outright, some researchers believe that Tea (no matter the type) can reduce the risk of developing cancer.

Indeed, preliminary evidence from a 2015 meta-analysis has already shown promising results. It noted that drinking a brew a day could reduce cancer risks by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none.

It’s essential to note, however, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does not endorse the consumption of Tea for this purpose at this stage. Nevertheless, we support ongoing research.

  9. This has become my everyday stock tea. Deep, malty and clean tasting. Maybe a little spice. Very easy to take for granted until a 'quality blend' is supped, then the real quality of the Mid Season Assam is missed.
