Created to match the style favored by the tea-loving Irish, this blend features a blend of Organic Black Teas, giving it a dark full-bodied, malty flavor that’s slightly stronger than the English Breakfast Tea. As its name implies, Irish Breakfast Tea is an ideal accompaniment to a morning meal, and the addition of milk and sugar to this tea creates a warm, solid flavor and aroma, providing a velvety smooth texture.
Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (T.G.F.O.P.) is FOP with a larger amount of tips. When these tips are in abundance, the terms 'Tippy and Golden' are attached to FOP, thus making it Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. TGFOP is the top grade of OP tea.
Flowery Orange Pekoe (F.O.P.) refers to a high quality whole leaf tea with a long leaf and good balance of tips. FOP contains fine, tender young leaves with buds (referred to as tips) and is made from the first two leaves and bud of the shoot. When harvested during the slow growth periods, these young buds have a golden tip, hence the grade 'Flowery', thus making it Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP).
