*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).
Tips & Info
The perfect cup – Gently pour 8oz of boiling water (212° F) over tea bag. Steep 5 minutes or to desired taste. Try adding 2oz of hot milk (or dairy substitute), and sweeten with raw honey, agave or sugar to taste.
A note for all of our teas: we use a commercial and professional food processing kitchen through the Island Grown program, where other farmers may process and store tree nuts, soy, dairy, wheat and other allergens.
