This FOP black tea from Lopchu plantation in Darjeeling has a dinstinct character. It is a uncommon, hard-to-find tea with a strong earthy terroir, redolent of the cool, pine tree-studded hills of Darjeeling.

Now this is orange pekoe. This tea is very much darker and stronger, with nice toasty and chocolatey accents.

The taste is also much darker and stronger, more earthy, yet still sweet. It has a nice pine after-taste that thankfully lingers long after the sip.

This is a reminder of how handsome a well rounded strong tea can be. I imagine this tea would be great with some honey, but is, of course, great on it’s own.
