Classic Ceylon Orange Pekoe Loose Leaf Black Tea
Classic Ceylon Orange Pekoe Black Tea
Classic Ceylong Orange Pekoe tea leaves are typically whole, long, wiry, with a slender appearance. The harvested leaves are from the topmost two leaves and a bud of the tea plant, known as Camellia sinensis. These young leaves are rich in flavor and nutrients, resulting in a vibrant and flavorful tea.
The blender and origin of the tea very much determine the flavour profile of orange pekoe tea, as a result there are many blends available. Orange pekoe often has a deep and intense flavour profile.
The tea is not orange in flavour. It is thought to be called Orange Pekoe because the Dutch royal family were the house of Orange in the 1600's. This is when only the finest of the black teas available were available for the royal family.
Classic Ceylon Orange Pekoe is a high quality loose leaf tea and as a result full of aroma and flavour, ready for you to enjoy at home. Serve black or with milk to your desired taste.
