What is Orange Pekoe Tea?
Contrary to popular belief, orange pekoe tea is not a type of tea, but rather a grading system used to categorize teas of high quality. It is made from the buds and tender leaves of Camellia sinensis, a plant that is native to East Asia. As the name suggests, orange pekoe tea has a bright amber hue and a full-bodied taste that is aromatic and flavourful. It is often consumed without any additions as it has a natural sweetness that is perfect for tea purists.
Benefits of Orange Pekoe Tea
Apart from its exquisite taste, orange pekoe tea has numerous health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants that help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. It also contains caffeine, which helps to boost energy levels and improve cognitive function. Additionally, orange pekoe tea is an excellent source of fluoride, which is essential in maintaining strong bones and preventing tooth decay. With these benefits, orange pekoe tea is a healthy addition to your daily routine.
