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

Having bought fresh cold water to a full boil, I place one tea bag in a cup and add the boiling water to it and left to steep for five minutes.

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 mild 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 mild-malty cup of tea that of Orange Pekoe.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
