Assam Orthodox F.T.G.F.O.P Golden Tips ‘Breakfast’ Tea

Assam Orthodox F.T.G.F.O.P Golden  Tips

Assam in North-East India is, along with China, one of the only two areas in the world with native tea plants – Camellia sinensis var. Assamica.

 The discovery of the local tea dates back to 1823 and is associated with the name of Robert Bruce. Generally sold as “breakfast tea”, of course within Assam teas we will also find top-orthodox (full leaf) tea, with a nobility and richness that can compare with Darjeeling Teas.

 This Assam tea is a mainly black whole leaf tea with some Golden Tips (Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe), grown in the lowlands at sea level in the valley of the Brahmaputra River, an area of clay soil rich in nutrients.

 The taste is full, with hints of ripe fruit and malt aroma and distinctive, sparkling, orange to copper-coloured brew.

Rich and malty with a beautiful copper tone…

 It is therefore a fine morning tea and can be drunk with milk and/or sugar whilst still retaining its full body and flavour.

 The best Assam teas are, with some exceptions, harvested in May or, at the latest, in early June.

50g-$6, 100g-$11.50, 200g-$22

Puttabong Kakra Muscatel second flush SFTGFOP (Dj-221)

Darjeeling_tea_LogoPuttabong Kakra Muscatel second flush SFTGFOP  (Dj-221)

An excellent organic tea from the renowned garden Puttabong, the oldest in Darjeeling, founded 1852.

The leaf of the china jat cultivar is affected before harvest by a small insect, resulting in disruption to the leaf structure whilst growing, which causes oxidation, increasing the content of the aromatic substances and changing the colour, giving the tea a special taste.

A very well made second flush tea with beautiful dark orange to golden brown colour to the cup with a full heavy aroma, including flavours of precious woods, and the rich taste of ripe fruit and muscatel, which holds on the palate for a delicate and soft aftertaste.
(harvested second week of june 2012)

A wonderful tea displaying all the characteristic of a classic Darjeeling Tea in all its balance and glory….enjoy!

Darjeeling Jungapana Muscatel Wonder Tea Dj-139 SFTGFOP-china special, organic

Darjeeling Jungapana Muscatel Wonder Tea

Grown as an organic classic ‘china bush’, -planted from seed not cuttings or clones, in an area found during a patrol searching for water (pani) for the king (jung) whilst warring with the English and Sikkimese . A stream was found and the tea garden later founded.

A very nice Autumn flush tea from one of the best classic tea gardens of Darjeeling (china bush etc) harvested in the first week of November 2012.

Dry, the tea has a classic dark bigger leaf with a fair amount of silvery and light golden tips, and a pleasant thick aroma of forest honey, Dutch cocoa and ripe blackberries.

After steeping for 5 minutes we get a dark golden orange sparkling cup with a well balanced medium to heavy taste of the classic Darjeeling teas and hints of mature forest fruits, honey, chocolate..

Whilst not a classic expressive muscatel tea, it is a wonderful harmonious tea with a fine aftertaste including hints of muscatel.
