A high quality Assam black tea with a long leaf and few tips, giving an intense yet delicate flavour.
A Chinese term meaning “white down”, it refers to the character of the tender young leaves. “Pekoe” and “Orange Pekoe” are terms for the grade of tea. Flowery orange are the leaves which are between 8 – 15mm and are close to the tip of the tea bush. Leaves are fine, wiry in their appearance, and produce a delicate and light vegetal flavour profile.
