Orange Pekoe OP1
100 gr. Tin
Whole leaf black tea coming from the tropical island of Sri Lanka, whose symbol is the lion. Sri Lanka is one of the major producing countries in the world thanks to the mild climate that allows for nearly year-round harvesting. Ceylon teas are appreciated for the copper brew, the strong aroma with notes of wood and fruits and the full and balanced flavor. Despite its name, this tea does not contain orange flavour, “Orange Pekoe” being a term to grade it.
A journey to discover the quality and unique taste of single-origin loose leaf teas. 12 classics selected from the best crops of four top producing countries: China, India, Ceylon and Japan. 12 symbols, 12 stories, 12 absolute “lords” among teas.
