Yunnan FOP Loose Tea
Out of stock
Our Flowery Orange Pekoe loose leaf black tea from China's famous tea-growing province of Yunnan has a rich, malty taste, which some compare to a classic Assam. It's distinguished by strong, fruity bass notes and the slightest suggestion of spice and smoke.
“Flowery Orange Pekoe” refers to the young, unbroken style of leaf, scattered with golden buds to give it that molten treacle sweetness. Simply add a splash of milk and it becomes a beautifully mellow breakfast brew.

Teaspoons (2 grams)
The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
