Orange Pekoe tea contains no orange. Don't feel bad, it's a common mistake. What it does contain is full rolled leaves of high quality grade black tea. Lower grades of Orange Pekoe are widely used in mass-market tea bags. It produces a robust copper red liquor with a full body and well-balanced flavor.

Some say it’s the copper-y color that gave this tea its “Orange” name. Others say it relates back to the Dutch East India Company which may have marketed this tea as Orange to give it a “royal” spin vis-à-vis the Dutch royal House of Orange-Nassau.

Insider's tip: We make GIANT pitchers of Iced Orange Pekoe with honey… so simple and so amazingly delicious.

This tea is sold loose leaf, meaning it will not arrive packed in tea bags.
