This Broken Orange Pekoe has a lovely malty with bright amber liquor. A good strong cup, full-bodied and rich.
Grown on the rolling plains by the Brahmaputra river that weaves its way through valleys and hills, Assam is famous for its smooth malty flavour. A taste crafted by the region’s rich loamy soil, unique climate, and liberal rainfall. Assam is not just the largest contiguous tea-growing area in the world. It is also a refuge for endangered species like the One-horned Rhino, Red-headed Vulture, and the Hoolock Gibbon and of course, mind-boggling diversity.
Tea Grade: Broken Orange Pekoe
This kind of tea rarely contains 'tips' but has larger leaves that have been torn or broken and have been harvested when the buds open into leaf. The broken leaves allow for faster release of flavour producing a stronger, more robust cup.
