Brewing instructions


Darjeeling First Flush Ambootia Tea SFTGFOP1 is an Indian Black Tea from the Ambootia Tea Estate. This garden lies in the Kurseong sub-division of the Darjeeling district, West Bengal, and has produced outstanding beverages since 1861.

Known for its eco-friendly farming and organic production methods, Ambootia is a leader in sustainable Tea manufacture. Why not support the environment with this infusion today?

Perhaps best of all, Darjeeling First Flush Ambootia Tea SFTGFOP1 tastes great. When brewed, it offers traditionally muscatel notes with floral undertones. The term “SFTGFOP1”, meanwhile, stands for “Super (or Special) Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe”, a Tea grade of many remarkable qualities. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.

About The Ambootia Estate

Few gardens have done more for the Darjeeling Tea industry than Ambootia. This estate, owned by Mr Sanjay Bansal, has not only looked after its own boundaries but also those of neighbouring plantations.

Indeed, Ambootia has since purchased sick gardens across the district (and in Assam) and nursed them back to good health with biodynamic farming methods.

Chongtong, Happy Valley, Monteviot, Moondakotee, Mullootar, Nagri, Nurbong, Sepoydhoorah (Chamling) and Sivitar have been brought under the management of Ambootia. Now, each estate, including Ambootia itself, produces the finest-quality Darjeeling Tea while at the same time maintaining the welfare of the local environment. Workers, too, have free access to many amenities.

Ambootia, in particular, has employed its creative skills to make an expansive range of speciality Teas. This, of course, includes our very own Darjeeling First Flush Ambootia, which goes above and beyond in almost every way.

It is a true delight to the senses, one that will have you brewing it up time and time again. Buy it today from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.
