What to Know About This Tea Grade
Tippy Golden Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe is a relatively uncommon Tea grade compared to the likes of regular FOP (Flowery Orange Pekoe) and BOP (Broken Orange Pekoe).
It is indeed a mix between the two, usually originating from only specific areas in Assam, as well as Darjeeling District in West Bengal. Expect high-quality leaves with a high proportion of tips.
About the Margherita Tea Estate
This garden takes its name from a nearby township founded by an Italian engineer - hence why, perhaps, you thought of pizza when you read the description! Margherita was, in fact, the reigning queen of Italy at the time of the estate’s founding - in 1884.
It lies in the upper end of the Assam Valley, an area known for its rich and fertile soil and unique climatic conditions. This makes for excellent Tea-growing.
How to Brew This Loose Leaf Tea
1, Add the Leaf Tea to a Tea Infuser or Filter.
2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.
3, Put the kettle on and, once boiled, pour it over the leaves.
4, Allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes.
How to Serve: Milk, sugar, honey or lemon - the choice is yours. Alternatively, serve black.
