Organic Nilgiri, FOP

Regular price $9.25

This smooth, strongly aromatic cup of rich black tea comes from the mountainous Nilgiris district in India's southernmost state. FOP refers to the high quality of the tea which is comprised of primarily mature leaves that are long, whole, and unbroken. These are nicely balanced with young leaves and tips which are the top two leaves of the plant and bud of the shoot. The buds often have a golden tip which is why the tea grade is considered "Flowery Orange Pekoe,"
If you like this tea, you'll love English Breakfast, Organic Assam, and Harmutty Estate.
