TC BROKEN ORANGE PEKOE TEA TIN
Decades of tea craftsmanship and technological innovation come together in this malty blend that’s unique to The Tea Centre! Our TC broken orange pekoe tea tin holds broken black tea leaves rolled into little balls. These balls unroll to release a bold and pure flavour upon infusion. Caffeine-rich and full of antioxidants, TCBOP is a great alternative to coffee and is most enjoyable in the morning with a splash of milk. In saying that, it also tastes perfect on its own.
A warming red hue when infused with water, our orange pekoe balls are packed full of rutin. Rutin is a citrus flavonoid that’s great at preventing premature ageing and tissue damage in the body. This brew is a specialist tea that is much adored for its quality and taste. You can also purchase TCBOP as a loose leaf refill here.
A common misconception is that “orange pekoe” refers to a classic tea type (i.e. black tea, green tea, oolong). However, orange pekoe is actually a specific grading system of black tea that, in reference to broken tea leaves, spans from TGFBOP1 (the highest-quality large leaves from the very top of the tea bush) to BT (older fleshy tea leaves). Ours is a middle-grade blend that allows the tea drinker the best of both worlds! The TC (tear and curl) manufacturing process makes our blend accessible to all while the BOP grading affirms how our tea is a premium broken leaf blend. If you’re looking to explore other grades of orange pekoe, we recommend our TC orange pekoe and its decaffeinated version too!
