* Orange Pekoe (OP):
Long, thin, pointed leaves (larger than FOP, see below), rolled lengthwise and picked when the final buds open into leaf. Rarely contains "tips," i.e. the very ends of the bud's leaves, which constitute a guarantee of quality. Produces a light or pale color. The predominant whole leaf grade in Ceylon and Java.
* Pekoe (P) and Flowery Pekoe (FP):
Short, fleshier and less refined leaves without tips. Produces a stronger color than OP; found mainly in Ceylon and Southern India, but also in parts of Kenya.
* Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP):
Fine, delicate, young leaves with a certain proportion of tips. Second grade tea in Assam, but top grade in most Chinese regions.
* Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (GFOP):
FOP with "golden" tips (tips of the particularly fine, golden-orange variety).
* Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (TGFOP):
FOP with many golden tips; the predominant grade in Darjeeling and Assam.
* Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (FTGFOP):
Outstanding golden-tipped FOP.
* Special Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (SFTGFOP):
Highest grade FOP with a large share of golden-tipped leaves; very rare.

Most of the Twinings Darjeeling blend is black, but you can spot some green particles. The Twinings loose tea has no uncut leaves. The blend uses smaller, less-expensive particles which infuse more quickly than whole leaves. The Twinings tea has enough tannins to tolerate milk or a sweetener. It has some harshness when infusing is done at too high a temperature or for too long.
I suggest steeping not more than 2 to 2.5 minutes to control bitterness. You may even want to check every 15 seconds starting at two minutes, since Darjeeling can quickly 'bolt' to a point of unpleasant sharpness. To avoid particulate matter in your drink, use a strainer or infuser with a fine mesh. (Amazon sells Tovolo, Teeli, and Frieling/Swissgold filters with very small openings in their screens.)
To gain the best flavor, I recommend brewing at a temperature of 185F or cooler. (A clean candy or meat thermometer can quickly guide your efforts.) If you have been brewing with water that is near boiling, you will be shocked by the huge transformation from using water that cools a couple minutes after reaching the boiling point.
I have enjoyed quality Darjeeling, the 'champagne of teas,' for over three decades. And, how do I rate Twinings? A bargain. If your enjoy Twinings, I suggest trying some other Darjeeling teas, perhaps estate grown. The better Darjeeling teas come from the higher elevations where the cooler mountain environment slows leaf growth and develops a fine flavor. Where should you search? Check reviews at Amazon and other sellers. Among the brands packaged in tins, I love Peets - normally known for their coffees.Read more ›
Organic Black Loose Leaf Tea: Earl Grey Creme 4 oz. + FREE Bamboo Tea Strainer. This earl grey crème specifically is the best tasting I've personally encountered. Other than that I think it is a perfect tea.
Especially for those who are trying to switch off of coffee. Add a little raw honey and it makes up for that missing vanilla. Smells good, tastes good and it energizes you.

While indicating three out of 5 on the tea leaf strength o'meter, I'd say this was more like a 2 with a dark colored liquid. But overall good for the start of the day.Published 2 days ago by Pmcleans
