What is Darjeeling Tea?
This wholesome, delicious, invigorating beverage is, to many, the “Champagne of Tea”. The region itself stretches between high mountain ridges and deep valleys, making it often challenging terrain to access.
As a result, the Darjeeling district, located in West Bengal, only contributes to 1% of India’s total Tea output. What it lacks in quantity, however, it makes up for in quality.
Most famous of all is Darjeeling First Flush Tea, which workers harvest from late-February to mid-April. First Flushes provide a delicate, light, floral and unmistakably refreshing flavour.
Then there is Second Flush, Monsoon Flush, Third Flush and sometimes even Winter Flush.
What Does “TGFOP1” Mean?
The phrase “TGFOP1” stands for “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe,” a grade of many remarkable qualities. “FOP”, in particular, denotes Tea made from the top bud and the first two leaves of each new shoot.
They contain young, tender leaves with a balanced amount of ‘tip’ and ‘bud’. “TG”, meanwhile, means it has an especially high content of golden tips.
