History states this high-quality tea got its name when the East India Trading Company presented it to the Dutch Royal Family, the House of Orange, and then promoted the tea as 'Orange Pekoe' to suggest a royal warrant. A Ceylon-style large leaf blend from the midland gardens of Sri Lanka, it is loved for its citrusy taste.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
