China Black F.O.P. Tea Organic

This excellent quality Black Gourmet Tea originates from east-central China and produces a dark, full-bodied cup of tea. It has a fresh and slightly sweet flavor with a fruity aroma.

Flowery Orange Pekoe (F.O.P.) refers to a high quality whole leaf tea with a long leaf and good balance of tips. FOP contains fine, tender young leaves with buds (referred to as tips) and is made from the first two leaves and bud of the shoot. When harvested during the slow growth periods, these young buds have a golden tip, hence the grade 'Flowery', thus making it Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP).

Packaging: To preserve freshness, aroma, and potency, our 4 oz loose teas are packaged in a convenient stand-up pouch with a re-sealable zipper closure.

Daily serving size: Pour 8 oz of simmering water (185-195° F preferred) over 1 tsp. of tea. Steep 3-4 minutes.

strong and bitter

It's a matter of taste, but I found that this tea didn't have the rich sweet humus/tanic flavor I associate with great tea. It's a kind of coffee-grounds type bitter, without a leafy floral anything to balance it. Prob'ly with enough sweetness added and maybe some milk, it would be great--that's my next plan for tackling it. Someone likely loves this kind of flavor, so don't take my word for it--but if hesitant, maybe try a small sample before a bulk bag.
