Nothing to do with
If you’re new to the world of tea, then you may not be
familiar with the term Orange Pekoe.
In brief the term ‘Pekoe’ pronounced
pea-koh means the type of
grading the leaves have. Pekoe leaves are the fine grade of tea which includes
the young leaves & buds.
The word Orange is believed to have come from a Dutch East
Indian company that tried to associate the tea leaves with the House of Orange,
a most respected aristocratic family in the days of the Dutch Republic.
Any-who, the tea tastes delicious & is a great base to
many of our blends as its large leaf holds onto flavours & can be brewed
for a longer steep time.
Unlike some supermarket
brands, our blends are made with passion, using the highest quality ingredients,
blending in small batches so you always get the best tasting tease.
