Ceylon Orange Pekoe


A fine quality breakfast black with a little bit of pucker.

Traditional black tea perfect for breakfast. Savor Sri Lanka’s fine history of tea with the Champagne of Ceylon! While many teas are comprised of a blend of leaves from different locations, this regional specialty is a single black tea from the Teardrop of India and certainly far from ordinary—a golden color in the cup and mellow in taste with a slight pucker nicely complemented by milk and white sugar. Enjoy your morning with this Ceylon tea!

Interesting to Know: Orange Pekoe is not a blend and has nothing to do with oranges. Orange Pekoe is a grade of tea, usually from either India or Sri Lanka. Some tea merchants use the term to name a fine quality black tea, good for all-day consumption either with or without milk.
