a kilo a month for the past several years... (the name is misleading though, its not flowery tasting..)
I buy ten kilos a year of this tea.
Nee I say more!
I used to have Keemun as my regular tea, and I still love that too, but FOP is more of an all rounder, appreciated by everybody as a good, straightforward, flavourful standard.
Flowery Orange Pekoe is a great everyday tea - flavoursome and fragrant. Plain enough in flavour not to offend PGTips drinkers, complex enough to interest coffee drinkers. I also love Keemun, but many friends and family find it too smoky, so FOP has become my default tea.
I did not know what to expect. Attractive name and indeed, a nice tea although the flowery element seems hidden - or perhaps too subtle.
