Hinter dem Türchen #8 unseres Advents-Teehauses hatte sich ein sehr feiner Schwarztee aus Südindien verborgen – ‘Nilgiri
Behind door #8 of our tea house Advent calendar a very delicate black tea from South India was hidden – ‘Nilgiri’

Ich musste mich erst einmal schlau machen was dieses TGFOP auf der Teepackung bedeutet, und bin in einem kleinen Online-Teelexikon fündig geworden: “Abkürzung für Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. Top-Grad bei Darjeeling Blatt-Tee.” – Aha. Das klingt doch echt nicht schlecht, ich meine nicht nur die Bezeichnung für die diese Abkürzung steht, sonder auch der “Top-Grad”. Da hat es den Stempel ‘fenster Schwarztee’ echt verdient. Und ich muss sagen er schmeckt wirklich ganz zart und hat laut Beschreibung von rauf-tee auch wenig Tannin was ihn sehr bekömmlich macht. 🙂
First, I had to educate myself about the TGFOP on the package, and found out that it stands for: “ Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe” which apparantly is a top-grade Darjeeling leaf-tea. Sounds pretty col, doesn’t it?! And ‘top-grade’ really deserves the “delicate black tea” labeling on the package. I have to say it really does have a delicate taste, very subtle. And with very little tannin content, it’s easy on your stomach even when drinking it all day long 🙂

  1. I have to admit that I didn’t really favoured any black tea until now – maybe I just always tried the wrong kinds of black tea, but during this advent-calendar-door-opening I came to really like some of them. Green tea & fruit teas are the ones I usually drink though (yes, green tea when feeling a bit…mellow works wonders)
