Our Ceylon Orange Pekoe is a whole new leaf and bud black tea from Sri Lanka. The "Orange Pekoe" doesn't refer to any flavors or colors you'll find when brewing this tea. It refers to the grade of the tea and tells you what kind of leaf structure you can expect in the teas. A Flowering Orange Pekoe (FOP) tea is going to have larger leaves while a Broken Orange Pekoe (BOP) is going to have more broken leaves in the tea.
Our Ceylon is a brighter black tea than those you'll find out of India. When smelling the dry tea, you'll find hints of a green lawn after a spring shower. A light breezy earthy scent. And when brewing you'll find hints of butter and a bit more of the fresh lawn scent. Ceylon Orange Pekoe is going to provide a refreshing change to many of our darker and richer black teas. Enjoy this tea with a little honey or a small amount of milk but you don't want to cover the natural notes of this tea.
Ingredients: Organic Sri Lankan Ceylon Orange Pekoe

I love this tea! It’s my favourite in my current subscription box and I’ve been saving it for special days because it’s got that deep, rich black tea flavour without any bitterness. It’s slightly sweet and I don’t add any milk or honey. If I had to pick just one tea to drink every day, this would be it!
