Orange Pekoe black tea infusers contain superior Ceylon tea leaves harvested from the verdant mountains of Sri Lanka. They are highly valued for their brisk, biscuit-like flavor balanced with astringent, citrusy notes. However, despite the name, no orange or other flavorings have been added to the leaves. Here, "Orange" refers not to a color or flavor but to the grading of the leaf size. "Pekoe" is derived from the Chinese word for white hair, due to a silver down on the leaves for 2 days after being plucked. These leaves are whole and unbroken, and create a golden-amber, medium-bodied brew that’s simultaneously relaxing and energizing.
Bring it to your home now in boxes of 48 tea infusers. Each is crafted from environmentally friendly PET fibers, and is designed to unfurl the leaves and release striking flavors and aromas into every cup. They also have an elegant, pyramid-like shape, adding to their aesthetic appeal.
