Organic Assam TGFOP Tea is considered as one of the finest black teas in the market. It is naturally grown on organic tea estates in the Northeast India tea-producing region of Assam. The finely twisted leaves with golden downy tips produces a rich, concentrated amber-colored beverage with a malty flavor that is to some extent softened by its exquisite honey notes. This tea is fully oxidized which turns the fresh green leaves of the tea plant into deep brown. It’s an energetic, fruity black tea which provides an exciting aroma of malt and rose petals. Its flavor is rich, yet fresh, smooth and mellow which appeals tea lovers. It has a rich red-brown infusion that exemplifies the character of a high-quality Assam tea.


Tea plantation in India was first publicly discovered in Assam in 1834, during the British occupation of India. As the British were more familiar with the well-established Chinese tea plantation, they attempted to import it and plant it in Assam. After various failed attempts, they finally accepted that the Assamese tea plant was much better suited to the local climate. Soon, commercial tea cultivation began there in fervent. Since that time, India has become the world's largest tea exporter.

How it Works:

Organic Assam (TGFOP) tea leaves are plucked, withered, rolled and fully oxidized. Oxidization means that the enzymes present in the tea leaves react with oxygen after the cell walls have been broken down through rolling, which causes these organic leaf teas to lose their fresh green color, eventually turning into a deep brown. This tea produces liquor that appears deep amber to copper-red in color. Full of flavors, this organic Indian tea has a rich malty taste with notes of toasted caramel and earthiness. This dark copper-colored tea goes well with milk and sugar and is a good morning tea.
