Drink Me: Simpson & Vail, Ceylon Orange Pekoe

Often I get asked why I don’t review more unflavored teas.  The simple answer is that I’m always interested in the flavored teas, but I will try and make more of an effort to review unflavored teas in the future.  To that end, in my order from Simpson & Vail, I selected their Ceylon Orange Pekoe.

From the website Ceylon Orange Pekoe contains “medium sized black-brownish leaves… [that] produce a deep amber cup with a brisk, well-rounded, flowery taste.”  Ceylon Orange Pekoe is a blend of black teas from several growing areas in Sri Lanka, which was formerly known as Ceylon.

Ceylon Orange Pekoe is available in a variety of sizes: 1oz for $2.00, 4oz for $6.65, 8oz for $13.30 and 1lb for $26.60.

This tea was a wonderful strong black tea, perfect for breakfast.  It was full bodied, but mellow and not too bitter. I enjoyed mine with a touch of sugar.  I also think those who enjoy milk in their tea would really like it in this one.  I do feel like this blend would be a good staple for any tea chest.
