(BOP 1) Broken Orange Pekoe 1 teas are golden, wiry, and generally of medium length. It’s one of the best of the broken tea category and bears a mild malty taste. The BOP1 range falls into the category of High grown and medium grown tea, hailing from the centre of the country’s hills, grown at an elevation 6000ft to 2000ft above sea level. Given the high elevation at which it is picked, the tea is bright in colour and greater in flavor and freshness. The rare and refined quality of the taste easily sets the tea leaves apart low grown varieties. BOP1 is one of the most sought after grades of High grown teas and is seen to be more favoured in Russia and Germany.
