  • Full Description

    Ceylon tea from Sri Lanka is celebrated for its clean, brisk taste, and this is a particularly fine Ceylon blended from a selection of estates.Orange Pekoe' refers to the grade, an unbroken whole leaf tea with long wiry leaves.

    Often misread as referring to the taste of the tea, the term Orange Pekoe' has a rather intriguing history. The word Pekoe' is a corruption of the Chinese for white tip', referring to the young, fresh tea leaves, while the inclusion of Orange' refers to Holland's royal House of Orange. When this tea was first brought to Holland in the 19th century, market-savvy merchants added it on to suggest a royal warrant.

NO.67

NUMEROLOGY

We’ve chosen the number 67 for our signature Ceylon Orange Pekoe: the first tea garden in Sri Lanka was founded by the Scottish pioneer James Taylor in 1867.

SRI LANKA

Coffee plantations were originally Sri Lanka's main economic resource, and it wasn't until the 1870s that a sudden blight devastated the coffee plantations and allowed tea to take centre stage. Today, "Ceylon" tea – known by the country's former colonial name – is famed for its clean, brisk taste.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
