FBOP Black tea

Referencing the Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe system, this grade is defined by two principles; the size of individual tea leaves and the part of the leaf, the tea contains.

‘Broken leaf teas’ emphasize the area of which the tea is plucked and how many buds or tips remain. Due to the increased surface area, a broken leaf tea will produce a darker & more intense brew compared to other distinctions among the grading system. These young leaves characteristically full bodied, smokey and rich, creating many of the signature flavours and aromas in our classic teas.

notes and tips

    • Heat the kettle to the desired temperature and pre-heat all the vessels, then discard the water.

    • If you don't have a temperature-controlled kettle or thermometer, add cold water to the tea before topping it with boiling water. We recommend 10% cold water for 90 degrees and 20% for 80 degrees. PLEASE NOTE: this is approximate, and different teaware materials will affect the outcome.

notes and tips

    • Weigh the appropriate amount of tea and add it to the pot. Pour the desired amount of pre-heated water over the leaves in a circular motion so the leaves unfurl and awaken.

notes and tips

    • Steep the leaves for the recommended time. If the leaves are tightly confined in the vessel, give a little stir to ensure maximum surface area is achieved.

notes and tips

    • Once the desired infusion time has finished, separate the leaves from the tea liquor by removing the infuser basket or by straining into a serving vessel.

    • Pour into a cup and serve.
