South Indian FOP Black

A good quality tea from Southern India. Great for a variety of uses.
FOP: Flowery Orange Pekoe. Pekoe (pronounced pee-koh) translates to 'white down' and refers to the fine white hairs on the young leaf bud. Flowery Orange Pekoe refers to whole leaf tea containing an amount of unopened buds from the tip of the tea branch.

Preparation: Use 1 gram of tea for 3 oz of water. Black tea is hardier and requires a steeping temp of 200 - 210 F for NO MORE than 4 min as black tea becomes very astringent if overextracted. High quality black teas are usually good for 2 quality infusions before the tea must be replaced.
*South Indian FOP is a rolled tea and thus requires space to unfold during infusions. Metal tea balls that restrict the expanding tea are not recommended. Instead, use tea bags or tea pots leaving plenty of room for the tea to open and breathe.
