ORGANIC BLACK TEA
This China Black Gourmet originates from Anhui, in east-central China, and it classifies as a black whole leaf blend. The dry leaf is dark black and partially open. This is a gourmet tea of excellent quality and value with dark liquoring.
China Black can retain its flavor for several years, unlike green which can lose its flavor within a year. This made it an excellent choice for exporting. This China Black was even compressed into bricks to serve as a form of currency in earlier eras. Flowery orange pekoe is high-quality with a long leaf and few tips. The FOP stands for "flowery orange pekoe," which refers to the color of the leaves and not the flavor. It is considered first grade in the China tea grading system and is an excellent choice for black tea.
It brews a crisp and lightly sweet, earthy cup with a medium body. It is a great base for blending with other flavors, for chai blends, and for iced drinks (as it does not cloud when chilled). This tea also takes the addition of cream and sugar well.
