Assam Tippy Golden Broken Orange Pekoe Tea
Flavour NotesBright, strong, malty
This Assam Golden Tippy Broken Orange Pekoe tea is of exceptional quality and is a superb accompaniment to breakfast or throughout the day.
Grown on the Chardwar Estate in the lush northern bank of the Brahmaputra valley, this tea is known widely for its inherently malty and powerful character.
The term ‘tippy’ when it comes to tea refers to the quality of the tea. If it is ‘tippy’, the tea is of higher grade and quality. The ‘tips’ of the tea refer to the bud which is picked. The best teas only contain the top two leaves and one bud from the bush, and if a tea is ‘tippy’, this means that it contains more buds which have the most concentrated and freshest flavours.
Broken Orange Pekoe teas have a smaller leaf size than that of their Flowery Orange Pekoe counterparts. The smaller leaf size allows for a faster infusion.
Expect a bright tea with a strong, superbly malty flavour which cuts through milk beautifully.
