À propos Orange Pekoe

Type de thé : Thé noir

Orange Pekoe is perhaps the classic black tea in the European tradition. Less astringent than our English Breakfast, our Orange Pekoe is ideal anytime one would drink black tea. Enjoy Orange Pekoe with milk and sugar, with lemon, or straight.

The term “Orange Pekoe” can be confusing. It is often misused to designate an unflavored black tea. Orange Pekoe does not refer to a color or particular flavor, or even to a specific variety or quality or tea. Orange Pekoe is nothing more than a designation basis of grading tea leaf size. When used as a tea description, Orange Pekoe refers to the leaf size and indicates a whole, unbroken leaf.

In “fine” hand plucking, only the top two leaves and bud are picked. This top most “bud” is actually an unopened leaf. The first leaf, just under the bud is known as the pekoe leaf, and the second leaf from the bud is called the Orange Pekoe leaf. They are called “pekoe” from the Chinese word for white hair because the leaf is covered with silver down for two days after opening. (The 3rd, 4th and 5th leaves are called the Souchong leaves.)

As a result of the full manufacturing process, the final product is comprised of leaf particles of varying sizes. Teas designated OP are comprised of larger leaf particles. BOP (Broken Orange Pekoe) designates a grade that is finer than OP. Grades finer than BOP are called fanning, PF for Pekoe fanning, and the smallest particles are referred to as dust. Dust grades are used primarily in lower priced teabags. This grading system is especially used in the countries of India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia and Kenya.

      One of my favorites

      I love this tea at any time of day. I drink my tea without milk, and this is smooth and not too tannic.

      Chemical taste

      I was disappointed to detect a chemical taste to the tea. I think it is caused by the infuser. Although very cute in it's pyramid shape with a tiny tea leaf on the top, it is white, probably bleached, and that's what I taste. I took tea out of the infuser and put it in an unbleached tea filter bag and it tasted better but still not perfect. I think I'm sensitive to chemicals because I notice it in other foods also. If I were to buy again from your company, I would buy loose tea.

      Nice Mellow Tea

      I like this tea but have decided I will now try the English Breakfast - for my first cup of tea in the morning I need a stronger tea.
