Grading: Broken Orange Pekoe: Main broken grade.
Orange Pekoe refers to the grade of leaf in this black tea. The word Pekoe most likely derives from Chinese “pek-ho” and refers to the silver hairs on leaves of certain types of tea bush. Orange most likely comes from the association with the Dutch Royal House of Orange-Nassau, and was used by the Dutch East India Company to market their tea brought to Europe.
Broken-leaf tea is tea that has been torn or broken, but is still in large enough pieces to be recognizable as pieces of leaf.
