A review of Orange Pekoe and Pekoe Cut Black Tea by Family Pantry

Using 1 tea bag and placing it in my cup I pour into the cup freshly boiled cold water and I leave this to brew for few minutes.

This tea’s color is dark amber and smells wonderful and citrusy like. Upon tasting the tea it is a nice a nice welcoming way to starting the day. It is somewhat malty in taste, there is smoothness to it as well and when swallowed there is a slight dryness to the back of throat.

Overall this is a good cup of tea for its value. It is recommended with lemon and sugar but I find that drinking it plain is just as nice since it has no off taste.

I’ve always been a defender of cheapie grocery-store brands as viable iced tea in the summer.

I am dirt poor so Family Dollar store is where I got it. They expect me in there. It’s funny how the world seems to know of one demise and helps you along to demise and failing; at least for this miserable soul.

Option now: go out for a walk in thunder storm or sit here and wonder what others re doing around me, other apartment dwellers I mean. Yes, life is miserable for this person. To be invisible, a nothing, and when deem present to be used.

My overall problem is that I don’t believe in concidence. I purchased some Arizona tea at dollar store and when i come to log it, it is there already, yet a year ago, but updated on June 6 2012. sporting similar email to mine 77. This is what is annoying; you feel spy upon and violated but it is my fault for taking it the wrong way. Oh, yes, husband paid for this tea and all else.

I am wasting my time being reviewer as well since it is not for me but another who resembles reviewers etc.

In all, I have issues because I am bothered by it all.

Dollar General is our downtrodden family buy-it-cheap hangout; we’re regulars, too. Don’t feel bad about that at all!

Hope your day brightens a bit. (A thunderstorm where we are would be occasion for a happy dance with balloons, it’s so dry!) I think I am safe in saying you are among friends here—the folks I’ve become acquainted with on Steepster have been nothing but kind and supportive.

A review of Orange Pekoe and Pekoe Cut Black Tea by Family Pantry

Orange Pekoe blends tend to include Ceylon which are known for their “brightness,” “liveliness,” and blend ability.
One of two teas that I like to prepare as iced tea.

I took poured freshly cold water into a pan on the stove and wait for it to come to full boil, I place several tea bags into the pan and left to steep for a few minutes more.

This tea’s color is golden amber and scenting of citrus. I wanted to try the first cup with no sweetener or milk, to enjoy it plain. It has a very mildly malty taste to it. It is not heavy on the palette, and no after taste. It has a drying effect once swallowed.

Having purchased this tea at a Family dollar store for daily consumption, I think that it is well worth the cup. An exceptionally mildly-malty cup of tea that of Orange Pekoe.

I let tea cool for about an hour and then pour content from the pan into my tea jug for later consumption of iced tea. I like this tea for its simple use in making tea: tea bags, cold (freshly drawn water) and something to cook it in and yes a stove. I guess for me three things are needed for a good cup of tea: fire, water, teabags or leaves, but then one needs a cup; so it is four things and I am not good at mathematics. Sorry!
