This beautifully aromatic and floral India black tea is produced using the finest tea leaves from the West Bengal district of Darjeeling. Offering up delicate and complex flavours of fruit and a subtly musky spiciness, Darjeeling B.O.P is best enjoyed black for a truly luxurious tea.
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.
The production of Darjeeling BOP tea begins when the tea bushes start to flush in spring, at which point leaves are hand-plucked so that only the highest quality leaves are selected. Plucked leaves are then processed by being withered, which allows the leaves soften and lose moisture, and then rolled, which starts the oxidation process. The leaves are then spread out to dry, before being sorted and graded by size and quality.
Darjeeling BOP tea is enjoyed by tea connoisseurs for its unique flavour and aromas, as well as its proposed health benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety and improving digestion.
