From T Kettle

Built for comfort, not speed. A moody and malty cup with hints of oak.

While Orange Pekoe is often heralded as a variety of tea, it is in fact, a grade of tea – the top grade actually. We’ve breathed new life into the blend with the best high grown teas from farms in Kenya, Assam, South India, and Sri Lanka with a smattering of green tea from Japan. Pekoe perfection.

Black tea, Green tea, Cornflowers.

This tea is tasteless, I tried with different kind of bottle water, same results. Very disappointed. I even tried to brew with lower temperature with different amount of leaves. Conclusion: do not buy this tea, it a waste of money. Always the same stale taste that I can’t even describe how the single flavour taste.

This Orange Pekoe is an abomination.

Like, I’m sorry because that’s not a very nice thing to say – but it’s what I feel in my heart.

I mean, do you know how much it killed me making the Steepster page for this tea and having to check off that it was a blend of black and green tea!? More than that, which is already a crime in my books, it has cornflowers blended into it!? I’m usually all for colouring just outside the lines when it comes to the “rules” of tea, but this is just so far off the page that when I first saw the tea photo on the T Kettle website I thought they had made a mistake and used the photo from one of their other teas.

This is just not what an Orange Pekoe should be. Why does this exist!?

And more over, it’s not even good. Like, if it tasted okay I could maybe excuse the mess that is this tea – but it was just soooooo stale/flat and lifeless tasting. Just, very very sad tea. I have tried to be reaaalllyyyy conscious of not just roasting some of T Kettles blends because I can. However, I don’t feel bad for this one. Just…

What. Were. They. Thinking.

Oh dear!

Wait, it has green tea in it?? I was already offended that it had cornflower petals. Why?? From Japan? Japan doesn’t even use the pekoe grading system! What.

Roswell Strange

Literally all of that. I’m glad that I’m not alone in my confusion and feelings of appalment.
