Lake Tahoe Vanilla Rum & Orange Pekoe Tea - Skiing Anyone? Easy Beverage to Make at Home This Winter

Orange pekoe tea is not flavoured with orange. It refers to the grade of tea, consisting of large pieces of leaves or even whole leaves. Orange pekoe is a high-quality grade of tea. The "pekoe" leaf (pronounced "peck-o"), is a term derived from the Chinese word for white hair because the tea leaf is often covered with a silvery down for 48 hours or so after opening. This recipe adds orange slices to add to the color and flavor of the cup.
