Assam Panitola Estate FTGFOP Grade 1 Black Tea Loose Leaf Highest Grade


£5.00




  • This FTGFOP is a  fantastic Grade 1 traditional black tea from the Panitola Estate in Assam 
  • The initials often seen after good quality tea stand for Finest, Tippy, Golden Flowery, Orange Pekoe.
  • A 'joke' among tea aficionados is that it actually stands for “Far Too Good For Ordinary People”. As in any clique, a certain amount of snobbery is to be expected, what we are trying to do is move away from that and offer everyone an opportunity to sample and enjoy some of the finest teas available.
  • We have chosen this particular estate tea as it represents excellent value for an excellent high quality tea.
  • The leaves are even and pine needle shaped with lots of tips.
  • A medium to strong, full-bodied, with a slightly malty taste, that is surprisingly spicy with a 'reddish' colour.
  • Beautifully refreshing, basic Assam teas are used in many blended teas including 'English Breakfast’ but you would want to appreciate this single Estate as one would single malt Whisky: on its own.
  • You will receive 75 grams of this tea for £5.00 allowing you to make 37 cups of tea, using two grams per cup. This works out at less than thirteen pence per cup. 
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout
