Assam Black Tea (TGFOP) (1 LB)

The Behora Assam is a FBOP (Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe) estate black tea. When brewed this tea produces a bright golden coppery color liquid with thick and brisk malty flavor.

Second Flush Assams typifies the best qualities that this particular type of Indian tea has to offer. The full bodied maltiness and rich pungency of an Assam is even more pronounced in this season. Although the Assam region does not benefit from the high elevations, this area has remarkable soil alluvial conditions and ideal temperatures for tea. Tea from the Assam tend to be higher in natural tannins and therefore are more astringent and have a 'thick' nose.

The British became interested in tea cultivation in the Assam region of India in the 1830's when it appeared that treaties with China, which included tea, were not going to be extended. The East India Company made representations to the British Governor of India to be allowed to research the possibility of tea cultivation in India. These discovered a hardy camellia that was indigenous to Assam. This particular genus of the camellia eventually became know as the 'Assam jat' and today forms the backbone of Assam tea plantations.
