Not only is Assam the worlds largest growing tea region located in the Northeast corner of India, it is also home to India’s indigenous tea bush. Assam teas are known to be full-bodied with brisk, strong malty flavours, and this one does not disappoint! This tea is fabulous as a stand-alone if you choose not to use milk or sugar.
For those of you wondering what the hay those letters mean? They mean Fine, Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe first grade. It’s a grading system used to grade the appearance and size of black tea.

No bitterness and very soft but good flavour

I found that this tasted very similar to an orange pekoe type black tea, but with a subtle hint of vanilla. It was a very nice twist on a typical black tea. Will buy again!

Perfect blend of flavours.

I received this tea with my first order. I found it highly enjoyable with a nice warm vanilla flavoring. This is the kind of tea that I would enjoy on a nice cold day. Warms you up from head to toe and the bourbon flavour notes enhance this rich tea.

This is probably my all time fav tea. I have one cup every morning. I feel like my day hasn't started the right way if I miss it!

I was lucky enough to snag a groupon and picked up a pouch of this tea. When I first opened it and inhaled the scents I knew I was in love.
Me and the boy often enjoy this in the morning with milk and a bit of brown sugar.

Just love this tea and the combination of flavours. Might just replace Monk's Blend as my favourite, although they are both great. also love Earl Grey de la Creme

I bought this tea for my husband. He had a hard day yesterday, and had a bit of a cold, so I brewed him a pot. He took one sip and loved it! Then he asked if he could add a shot of Scotch to ease his throat (he is Irish!). It was so good, I made myself a pot.
