TC ORANGE PEKOE LOOSE LEAF
Our TC orange pekoe tea is another tea from our ethically sourced range. Kelani Valley Plantations, one of the world’s first recognised ethical tea gardens, works hard to create delicious tea, and foster a culture of respect and progress for tea growers.
Did you know that ‘orange pekoe’ is not a flavour, but a grade of tea? It denotes that the leaves in this tea were plucked from the lower parts of the common tea (Camellia Sinensis) plant! Our German supplier then blend these whole leaves together to produce this bold and flavourful tea. An enjoyable sip in the morning, noon, and at night. Orange pekoe is also a key ingredient in Honk Kong-style milky tea! Let this beverage take you on a trip thanks to its luxurious blend of Sri Lankan black tea. Combine it with Chinese Pu’erh or Yunnan black tea, and sweet condensed milk. A sweet treat that’s delicious both warm or iced. Need pointers on how to ice this tea? Check out our brewing guide here.
This bestseller is also an ideal base for all your kombucha brewing needs. An organic base makes the best starter for your homemade probiotic. The medium strength of this tea helps any added fruity flavours shine through. We have a selection of orange pekoes from around the world at your fingertips!
