  • Details

    The Organic Assam Loose Leaf TGFOP (Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe) blend from English Tea Store is flavorful with superb astringency and full on 2nd flush jammy profile.

    As one of the finest black teas on the market, here are some terms to become familiar with when enjoying this delicious blend:

    Croppy: a tasting term that describes much sought after bright creamy liquor. Most high quality second flush Assams usually display this characteristic.

    Brisk: A tea with a lively vivacious flavor.

    Biscuity: A term professional tasters use to describe a well-fired Assam - perfect temperature + perfect timing = Biscuity (just a side note...all good Assam teas pair well with almost any variety of biscuits)

    How to Make Tea

    Available in 3 sizes (Please select from the options above):
    • First time trying English Tea Store's Organic Assam TGFOP Tea?

    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 4 ounces
    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 16 ounces (1 pound)

    Caffeine content: Medium - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of black tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 27 to 35 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 - 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

    Antioxidant Content: Very High - The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

      Great Quality

      For years I bought my Assam from a well-known, high-end retailer in London. This is as good or better, and a much better price since it's shipped from a US retailer. Very happy with the quality and the zip-top pouch keeps it nice and fresh.

      Good, full-bodied taste

      Posted by V.O. on Jul 21st 2020

      It's delicious! Strong, dark, a little bit sweet, and the leaves are of appropriate size. It's exactly what I was looking for.

      Organic Assam TGFOP tea - loose leaf

      Posted by Ken on Jul 7th 2020

      This is my favorite tea, smooth, flavorful, moderate caffeine. I order 16 ounces every few months, and it stays fresh in resealable bag.

      Nothing like the description

      Posted by John on Jun 20th 2020

      This isn't a bad tea but it's nothing like the description. There are no tips at all, and no astringency or jamminess. It looks and tastes for all the world like a standard flat-black Ceylon -- so much so that I wonder if a batch of Ceylon got mis-bagged as an Assam.

      A very good tea.

      Posted by none on Mar 22nd 2020

      A very good tea for the price. There are others I prefer, but this is more affordable and a quite decent quality. I like a strong, full-bodied tea that stands up well to milk and this one does so.

      The flavor has many notes. Perfect for my pots of iced tea and kombucha batches.

      Assam is a lovely tea and this one did not disappoint. It made a strong brew that stood up well to food accompaniments. It was delicious with a touch of sucanat and cream.
