To many tea drinkers, the term “orange pekoe” is a mystery. In reality, it’s quite simple. “Pekoe” is a common grading of Indian and Ceylonian teas that has several finer gradings (each indicated by an additional letter added to the left of the others). It is also used for some Chinese teas such as Keemuns and Yunnan Dian Hongs. We thought a nice infographic (all the rage these days among social media experts) would help here, so we did this one:
