From Culinary Teas

The liquor of this Orange Pekoe is bright with excellent flowery flavor. The cup tends somewhat light. A superb after dinner tea.

I only have small, single-serving teapots at the moment, which means that the bf and I often end up drinking different teas in the evenings. I suppose this is for the best: while we have similar taste in teas we are often in different “tea moods.” But since I am in charge of actually brewing the tea, I end up having to wrestle out of him what he wants to drink. Sometimes it’s very specific, but some nights (like tonight) he’ll say “some sort of black tea.” I have 36 different blacks in my cupboard, not including samples or blends with green/white teas. So really, not a very helpful suggestion! I decided to go with the Orange Pekoe tonight, which I specifically got for him when I had my big Culinary gift certificate. He used to have a bagged version a lot and liked it, plus I can always go for more afternoon-type blacks.

This is an… unassuming tea. It’s mild, sweet, only a bit brisk and very mellow. Definitely more of an after-dinner drink than a mid-afternoon one, and with milk & sugar it’s definitely more likely to put you to sleep than give you a jolt of caffeine. But I certainly don’t need all my teas to be eye-openingly brisk, and for what it is this is definitely a solid choice.
