Assam BOP black tea: a rich and full-bodied taste, to be enjoyed in the morning
Grown in the Brahmaputra valley, only the last two leaves of the tea plant are plucked. The grade "Broken Orange Pekoe" means that they are smaller and broken. The orange color refers to the Nassau royal family of Holland, the first importers of tea in Europe. The climate of the valley (tropical with heavy rainfall, high humidity and extreme temperatures) gives a malty taste and a unique note to these black teas. Earl Grey is made of Assam tea.
