From Fortnum & Mason

Orange Pekoe denotes a large-leaved tea, and the dark, even leaves of this tea are indicative of a really good Ceylon. Just a touch of delicate high-grown tea is added to the more robust low-grown leaves to create a medium-strength brew – ideal for a pick-me-up in the afternoon.

Taste and Strength

Bright, crisp and full-bodied

When to Drink
Best in the afternoon
Brewing Information
Use boiling water and brew for 3-5 minutes depending on taste. Serve with milk or brew lighter and drink without milk.
Storage advice
Airtight container, preferably a tea caddy.

Morning brew. Eying the new teas at Verdant, but I know that I’m going to splurge on teas while in London, so I’m not sure if it’s worth buying now or waiting a month or two…

Had a cup of this for breakfast. Deep, dark flavor. I really enjoy this. It has this slight bitterness (not from oversteeping, just from the tea’s flavor) that is really enjoyable. Complex, strong, flavourful. I recommend this tea if you like strong black teas, that is.

Fortnum & Mason have very strong blends in my opinion, typicals from what I imagine an English tea base is…perfect to add a dash of milk. I drink all my teas without milk but I am not able to do so with some of the F&M ’s blends :(


Yeah, this tea really is quite strong. Doesn’t fit every palate, but definitely tasty on a palate it fits!
