Superior quality from one of the best tea growing areas.  TGFOP - Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe - This grade represents some of the most precious tea in the world. After brewing, it is not uncommon to see whole leaves in their original state.

This high quality black tea, from the Dikom garden in Northeast India, creates a fragrant cup which is rich, heavy and malty.

This is a loose tea. (use 1 teaspoon per cup of tea)

Tea is grown on estates that range in size from a quarter acre farmed by a single family to giant plantations with hundreds of acres. The bushes are kept pruned to a height of 3 feet for easy harvesting of leaves and each acre typically has three to five thousand tea bushes. A tea plant may remain productive for over a century. Only about half the leaves produced during the life of the bush are actually picked and processed for market.

The crop taken from the tea bushes consists of young leaf shoots and the unopened leaf bud. These are rich in caffeine and the organic compounds that are responsible for the smell and taste of the tea. Picking, which is really plucking and is often called that, is either "fine" or "course". Two leaves and a leaf bud is fine plucking, three or more leaves and a leaf bud is considered course plucking. High quality teas are always harvested with fine plucking. Unlike many crops, tea is plucked or harvested at least three times a year and sometimes dozens.
