Hunwal's reputation for producing Orthodox teas is as rich as its heritage. FBOP and GBOP. What's the difference between the two? FBOP, (Flowery Broken Orange pekoe) is a tippier version of GBOP (Golden Broken Orange Pekoe) and therefore slightly milder in the cup. The tea produces a delicately astringent liquor with flavorful layers of malt. These characteristics make Hunwal FBOP excellent on its own or with a dash of milk. Raise a cup to the past!
