It is important to prepare your tea well, but knowing its history is just as important!
As its name indicates, Assam tea comes from the Assam region in India. Like all other teas in the world, it comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant and more precisely from the assamica variety.
The state of Assam is located in the North East of India. This region of plains is crossed by the famous Brahmaputra river, located between Bangladesh, Burma, Bhutan and China. This region is renowned for producing teas of exceptional quality.
The letters GFOP stand for Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe, which is a second flush tea, where whole leaves are rolled with the final bud (Pekoe) during drying, and which has many leaves with golden tips.
The Assam tea leaves are harvested only by hand and placed in large bamboo baskets or cloth bags. Once filled, these baskets are transported to a production facility on site where the leaves are oxidized to become black tea.
