Our Orange Pekoe Ceylon tea is a beautiful example of pure organic Ceylon black tea! Orange Pekoe or 'OP', refers not to the tea plant, or flavor, but to the grade of leaf used- OP refers to young leaves uniform in size, picked when the tip first starts to open. Orange Pekoe Ceylon tea is unmatched in terms of quality and strength, and we think you will agree, this truly is a drink to be savored. The wonderful tea plantations of Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) are synonymous with the production of famous black teas, and Ceylon tea is revered across the western world for its wonderfully robust and unmistakably aromatic flavor!
The unmistakable Ceylon aroma is rich, robust and strong, with wonderful honeyed chocolate notes, offering a mellow sweetness that is the perfect balance to a crisp, clean aroma slightly reminiscent of citrus. Orange Pekoe Ceylon is the perfect choice for afternoon tea with friends, or to enjoy at any time of the day!
