Is this Darjeeling a black tea?

I’m confused- I got the Darjeeling Goomtee FTGFOP-1 from TeaFrog but the package doesn’t say whether its a black tea, oolong, etc. or a blend. How come?

This is not a blend… it is an estate tea (that’s what the Goomtee means, it’s the name of the estate). The FTGFOP-1 means Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. It is a black tea.

I agree with LiberTEAS – it is a black tea from goomtee plantation. But it would be good to ask TeaFrog for confirmation – though traditionally Goomtee is known for its blacks. FTGFOP1 means the grade of the black tea – grading is done based on the size of the leaves.
