Wikipedia says, "Orange Pekoe, is a term used in the Western tea trade to describe a particular genre of black teas (orange pekoe grading). Despite a purported Chinese origin, these grading terms are typically used for teas from Sri Lanka, India and countries other than China; they are not generally known within Chinese-speaking countries. The grading system is based upon the size of processed and dried black tea leaves."
All I know is that after having a cup of tea one morning, I looked out through the sliding glass door (we have 9 foot sliders) and saw this amazing October sunrise and thought of Orange Pekoe tea. Do you have a favorite tea on your list? I drink all kinds since I find it relaxing and warms your soul.
Orange Pekoe is also a Japanese music duo which formed in 1998, and had its first major debut in 2002, with the single "Happy Valley". The band is named for orange pekoe, a type of tea. I can imagine the people down in the valley of this photo will be warmed by the sun for another day.
