This full-bodied black tea lends its strength to English and Irish breakfast teas, but when prepared on its own it produces a wonderfully strong tea with delightful malty flavours and a lovely bright colour. This finest Assam BOP is of the highest quality and guarantees a powerful and refreshing tea that can be enjoyed all through the day, brewed medium or strong.
Assam tea leaves are grown from the Camellia sinensis plant, which benefits from the region’s ideal growing conditions: high levels of rainfall and daytime temperatures that can rise to around 36 °C, creating the heat and humidity that gives the best Assam teas their characteristic maltiness and strong, bold flavours. During production, leaves are plucked and withered to remove excess moisture, before being rolled and fermented, which results in a darker colour and strong flavour. The leaves are then dried, which stops the fermentation process and preserves the wonderful flavour and aroma.
The “BOP” refers to a particular grade of tea, “Broken Orange Pekoe”, part of the Orange Pekoe category of tea grade, one of the highest black tea grades available. BOP leaves are indeed broken, allowing for a faster release of flavours and aroma during the brewing process, resulting in a stronger and robust flavour.
