Orange Pekoe Tea

Taste-wise, Vietnamese Orange Pekoe can be compared to some of the best Ceylon highland tea's  and makes a superb afternoon tea. Orange Pekoe is a long wiry leaf, the meaning of the words are lost in the past but Orange refers to the Dutch "Oranje" which means Royal. Orange Pekoe uses the whole tender flesh of the leaves unlike plain Pekoe which makes a stronger cup due to being produced from more leaf ribs and less flesh. 
Vietnamese Orange Pekoe makes a superb afternoon but can be drunk at any time of the day.


 
Hot Tea Brewing Method

Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into your teapot. For a more intense flavour, add a bit more tea. Pour boiling water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 - 7 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.

Add milk and sugar to taste. Acceptable to drink 'straight up.'

Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup.


 
Iced Tea Brewing Method

Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a general rule of thumb is to double the amount used. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.

Alternatively, you can cold brew the tea by placing the tea in a jug and adding cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
