Description

What does SFTGFOP(1) mean?

SFTGFOP(1) is the abbreviation of Super Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe 1. This is the a long winded rating that is delegated to only the finest teas. Typical teas from India are Orange Pekoe (OP) grade, while teas from the grocery store are typically fannings or dust, or what is left over from processing the finer teas.

Assam (Assamese: অসম, Hindi: आसाम, and also Hindi: असम) is a black tea named after the region of its production, Assam, in India. Assam tea (Assamese: অসমীয়া চাহ, Hindi: असमिया चाय) is manufactured specifically from the plant Camellia sinensis var. assamica. This tea, most of which is grown at or near sea level, is known for its body, briskness, malty flavor, and strong, bright color.

The state of Assam is the world’s largest tea-growing region, lying on either side of the Brahmaputra River, and bordering Bangladesh and Burma (Myanmar). This part of India experiences high precipitation; during the monsoon period, as much as 10 to 12 inches (250–300 mm) of rain per day. The daytime temperature rises to about 103F (40 °C), creating greenhouse-like conditions of extreme humidity and heat. This tropical climate contributes to Assam’s unique malty taste, a feature for which this tea is well known.
