Chingwo County Orange Pekoe is a classic good quality China black tea. The leaf is very well graded displaying uniform leaf size with a little bit of ‘tip’. ‘Tip’ is the tip of the new shoots and during the manufacturing process these tips turn a gold brown. ‘Tippy tea’ is a leading indicator of exceptional quality, selective grading and usually only available in the first few weeks of the new season (New season teas have the most flavor, rarest and most eagerly sought by tea connoisseurs).
Chingwo County Orange Pekoe is made from locally grown Daibaicha tea bushes. These bushes are renown for their stout full flavored and origin distinct taste and wiry leaf appearance. The best way to describe the full flavored taste is to think of a full-bodied red wine with a lovely dry pungent or oaky character. Chingwo County Orange Pekoe is an excellent self-drinking tea, particularly suited for afternoon tea with dainty cucumber sandwiches followed by creamy sweet vanilla cookies.
