This traditional black tea, originating in China, is incredibly popular and known for its smoothness. 

What does FOP mean?: FOP refers to the quality, or the grade of tea. Tea is graded based on leaf size and quality. Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP) is a high-quality grade where the leaves are a bit longer and not as tightly rolled as Orange Pekoe (OP) or Pekoe (P), but still intact and without golden tips. Broken leaves with golden tips signify a lower grade.
