What Does “TGFOP” Mean?
Do you find all these grade names baffling? You’re not the only one. When it comes to this particular beverage, the term TGFOP stands for “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe”.
The latter part of this term, FOP, denotes Tea made from the top bud and the first two leaves of each new shoot. The former part refers to how it contains a high content of golden tips.
