Assam Tea Broken Orange Pekoe is a Black Tea from the Indian state of Assam. The term “Broken Orange Pekoe” (BOP) refers to how the leaves have, quite literally, been broken into smaller pieces. The primary reason for doing this is to ensure it boasts a strong, indeed hearty, flavour with every sip. When brewed, this beverage has a bold malty flavour with sweet undertones.

More About Assam Tea
Unlike Chinese Tea, which dates back thousands of years, Assam Tea only came into existence in 1823. This was when a Scottish explorer called Robert Bruce discovered an Indian variety of the Tea plant growing in Assam. Since then, the beverage that has taken on the name of this state has proven to be immensely popular around the world.
The region itself lies to the northeast of the country and is dominated by the mighty River Brahmaputra. The free-flowing water from here makes the Assam Valley remarkably fertile, which in turn helps to produce characteristically strong and malty Tea. If you’re interested in discovering its potential, look no further than our Assam Tea Broken Orange Pekoe.
