The tea’s nomenclature signifies its superior grade, with the abundance of letters denoting excellence.

The term “Orange” harks back to the Dutch Royal Family’s tea preferences, as Dutch traders were among the first Europeans to introduce tea to Europe. Additionally, “Pekoe” originates from a Chinese term referring to the fine white hairs on tea leaves.
