Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
Organic Green Darjeeling Makaibari FTGFOP1 is a great choice for six main reasons. First, it is produced using only controlled bio-cultivation methods, meaning it is free from synthetic fertilisers, herbicides, and pesticides. Second, it is a Green Tea, which is considered one of the world’s healthiest brews and can improve cardiovascular health, lower “bad” LDL cholesterol, boost the metabolism, thus helping you to lose weight, and even reduce the risks of developing Type II Diabetes.
The third reason is owing to the location in which it is grown and harvested, Darjeeling, known globally for producing the so-called “champagne of teas”. Then there is the fact that, of all tea estates in Darjeeling, the Makaibari tea estate is one of the best and has been ever since its establishment in 1859, which is the fourth reason. Next, FTGFOP1 stands for “Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe”, which represents a tea with the highest tippy content, while “tippy” in itself refers to a tea that includes a greater portion of tips (leaf buds); this ensures quality, and is the fifth reason to choose Organic Green Darjeeling Makaibari FTGFOP1.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, it tastes great, offering unique grassy flavours and irresistible aromas. Organic Green Darjeeling Makaibari FTGFOP1, quite simply, has it all!
The district of Darjeeling is best known for producing Black Teas and has been for nearly 200 years; however, there are exceptions to this rule with our Organic Green Darjeeling Makaibari FTGFOP1 being a prime example. Tea was first discovered in India in 1823 and since then, the country has become the fourth largest exporter in the world after Kenya, Sri Lanka and, of course, China. Darjeeling is considered one of the three main tea-growing areas of India but is also the smallest, accounting only for 1% of the country’s total tea output.
But what it lacks in size it makes up for in quality and taste. Its history is also rich while its flavour is often delicate, muscatel and malty when it comes to Darjeeling Black Tea. Darjeeling Green Tea, on the other hand, is very much an “up-and-coming” beverage currently taking the world by storm. Find out why today with our Organic Green Darjeeling Makaibari FTGFOP1.

Health Benefits: So, is that it? Absolutely not. Organic Green Darjeeling Makaibari FTGFOP1 can do so much more when it comes to its astounding health benefits. Aside from the benefits mentioned above, any Green Tea including, of course, this one, can, potentially (and it should be noted that studies are still in the preliminary stage), reduce the risks of developing cancer.
In 2015, a meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risks of developing cancer by 2%. Those who drank the most tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none. Until more is known, however, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company do not endorse the consumption of Organic Green Darjeeling Makaibari FTGFOP1 Tea, or any other tea, for the purpose of combating cancer.
