Referencing the Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe system, this grade is defined by two principles; the size of individual tea leaves and the part of the leaf, the tea contains.
‘Broken leaf teas’ emphasize the area of which the tea is plucked and how many buds or tips remain. Due to the increased surface area, a broken leaf tea will produce a darker & more intense brew compared to other distinctions among the grading system. These young leaves characteristically full bodied, smokey and rich, creating many of the signature flavours and aromas in our classic teas.
