Orange Pekoe Tea
Orange pekoe tea is a type of black tea which has numerous beneficial advantages for the health. It provides a strong flavour and is noted by science to contain nutrients that are good for the body. Originally from China, this tea is primarily found in Sri Lanka and India, where the soil conditions are ideal for the plantation crop. The is often a misinterpretation that orange pekoe tea is flavoured in some way, this however is incorrect, it is simply the name of the tea which comes from the copper colour when harvested before oxidation. In the brewed tea, the colour is revived and a golden orange tinge is notable.
