Company Product Description: Widely accepted as a prestigious tea, FBOP Extra Special is a wiry well twisted long leaf tea. Its high percentage of “long tips” makes it much sought-after in the world of quality teas. It is usually served straight and has a sweetish soothing taste.
This tea looks great, with the golden tips, and smelled incredible. My first thought when I smelled it was “chocolate”, but then I quickly realized there was more to it, more like “chocolate raspberry”, which made me really anticipate having this tea. I normally drink my black tea with milk, but I tried this without first, and I could definitely get used to this. I was expecting the usual astringency you get with a black tea, but this was incredibly smooth, with only a hint of the acidic taste on the finish, which was surprising because I like my tea strong and I let this brew for a bit longer than normal. A great, bold, silky smooth tea, perfect for waking up with.
