Strong Assam

Assam GBOP (Golden Broken Orange Pekoe) is a type of black tea originating from the Assam region of India. It is renowned for its bold flavor, robust character, and distinctive appearance.

The "Golden" in its name refers to the presence of golden tips, which are young, tender buds that contribute to the tea's superior quality and appearance. "Broken" indicates that the leaves are broken into smaller pieces compared to whole leaf teas, allowing for a quicker infusion and stronger flavor extraction.

Assam GBOP is graded based on the size of the leaf particles, with GBOP consisting of smaller leaves compared to TGFOP (Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe). Despite its broken leaf form, Assam GBOP still offers a full-bodied cup with rich malty notes and a characteristic briskness that Assam teas are known for.

When brewed, Assam GBOP produces a deep amber liquor with a robust aroma and a bold, malty flavor profile. It is often enjoyed with or without milk and sugar, making it a versatile option for tea enthusiasts seeking a satisfying and invigorating cup.
