A particularly fine Ceylon blended from a selection of estates, “Orange Pekoe” refers to the grade, an unbroken whole leaf tea with long wiry leaves. Significantly lighter and less astringent than other Sri Lankan teas you may have tried, our signature Ceylon loose leaf tea is best enjoyed black. However, if brewed strong it can certainly hold its own against a splash of milk. Easy-going and versatile, it’s a tea for all tastes.

Often misread as referring to the taste of the tea, the term “Orange Pekoe” has a rather intriguing history. The word “Pekoe” is a corruption of the Chinese words for “white tip”, referring to the young, fresh tea leaves, while the inclusion of “Orange” refers to Holland’s royal House of Orange. When this tea was first brought to Holland in the 19th century, market-savvy merchants added it on to suggest a royal warrant.
