Assam Broken Orange Pekoe
This unflavoured black tea contains a blend of different leaves from the summer harvest. The Assam leaf is known for its strong, malty and aromatic leaf with rich body.
By breaking the leaves (OP= Orange Pekoe), the leaf surface-area increases and allows the tannins to be released faster.
This broken Assam leaf will provide you with a rich level of desirable harshness. The slightly tangy, yet malty aftertaste is typical of this leaf.
Small, broken tea leaf, medium proportion of tips. Malty.
An ideal infusion for those who like their tea with milk or cream, and sugar. Often had as a breakfast tea.
