Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Assam Tea Thowra TGFOP is an Indian Black Tea from the Thowra Tea Estate. It consists of large-sized orthodox leaves from the second flush, which, as most Assam Tea connoisseurs will know, is of the highest quality.
When brewed, this infusion has a deep, dark, reddish liquor, its aroma rich and spicy, its taste full-bodied, traditional and malty. We pack it fresh to order.
There is also a sizable amount of caffeine, around 40-mg per 8-oz cup, found in our Assam Tea Thowra TGFOP. This, of course, makes it a great choice first thing in the morning when you need an extra boost to get you out of bed.
Some scientists even believe it has health benefits to it due to its abundance in antioxidants in tea. Most, however, choose this beverage for its exceptional character and flavour.
What Does “TGFOP” Mean?
The “TGFOP” in its name stands for “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe,” a Tea grade of many noteworthy qualities. The “TG” in it, in particular, represents Tea with the highest tippy content.
“FOP,” meanwhile, denotes Tea made from the top bud and the first two leaves of each new shoot. In other words, it is nothing but the best when you buy Assam Thowra Tea.
Assam Thowra Tea Estate
This is one of the most famous gardens in all of Assam. It lies in the Sivasagar district, and it has long been praised for its excellent Tea bushes and fertile soil.
Thowra is run by James Warren Ltd, a plantation group with a close association to The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. In the 1970s, Malcolm Smith, the father of our owner Richard Smith, used to be the head of James Warren Ltd.
Thowra is the flagship estate of the group. It makes some of the best CTC (cut, tear, curl) Teas in the world, which, of course, includes our very own Assam Tea Thowra.
Why not realise its full potential today? Why not indulge in its malty goodness made all the better by the prestigiousness of the garden it originates from? You won’t be disappointed.
