*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).
**Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (T.G.F.O.P.) is FOP with a larger amount of tips. When these tips are in abundance, the terms 'Tippy and Golden' are attached to FOP, thus making it Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. TGFOP is the top grade of OP tea.

Beneficial Ingredients -
Special Note about The Benefits of our Tea Blend Ingredients:
Personalities, physical bodies and emotional bodies vary greatly between us humans. Therefore, what works well for one person may, or may not, for someone else. The list below is meant as a starting point in educating oneself on the traditional benefits of certain herbs, flowers, plants and types of tea. As with anything you ingest into your body make sure you do extensive research, including speaking with your medical care provider, to understand what will work best for you.
Black Tea - Green and black tea provide similar health benefits, including for your heart and brain. While green tea may contain more powerful antioxidants, the evidence does not strongly favor one tea over the other. Both contain the stimulant caffeine and L-theanine, which has a calming effect.
Lavender - Drinking tea with Lavender in it is a great way to induce relaxation and unwind after a tough day. It's packed with healthy compounds that can boost your immune system and alleviate pain by reducing inflammation.
Chamomile - Has been valued as a digestive relaxant and has been used to treat various gastrointestinal disturbances including flatulence, indigestion, diarrhea, anorexia, motion sickness and nausea.
Rose Petals - Rose contains high amounts of Vitamin C, an antioxidant vital to our body's healing process and its ability to fight off infection. One study found that rose tea may also ease flu-like symptoms such as coughing and congestion. The scent can relieve stress, fight anxiety, and relax your body.
Calendula Petals - Along with many topical benefits Calendula is also excellent to drink in tea. It is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components, which might help protect against heart disease, and ease muscle fatigue.
Oil of Bergamot - Several studies have shown that bergamot may help to reduce overall cholesterol and “bad” LDL cholesterol. It may also help to increase “good” HDL cholesterol and has the potential to be an effective supplement to cholesterol drugs.
