Donyi Polo Orange Pekoe Black Orthodox Tea (250gms)


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. 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.
