Orange Pekoe Tea
Delicious! A highly fragrant tea, with strong floral and fruity aromas. But there's no orange flavor here - the name can be confusing! Pekoe is actually a name that tea growers use to designate black tea leaves that are very small, hardly even more than a bud! Where the word Orange came from, we're not sure. It may have been that the Dutch East India Company started using it as a marketing shenanigan. In any case, we're stuck with this cute name for a very flavorful blend of longwise-rolled black teas that produces a lovely amber brew. Great with milk.
