Bartender and tea sommelier Robert Schinkel selected the finest hand-picked tea from Dilmah's tea gardens in Sri Lanka and worked with Dutch distillers Herman Jansen to create this tea liqueur.

Pekoe, pronounced 'pek-ko' is a term used in the grading of high quality black teas and refers to young tea leaves picked close to the bud. The finest teas are made only from the top two leaves and the bud. Both sides of Pekoe's elegant bottle are shaped after the two leaves while the side of the bottle represents the tea plant's bud.

The tea used to make this Earl Grey tea liqueur come from the lush green tea gardens of Rilhena Estate in southern Sri Lanka.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 12/01/2016

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Just opened caddy of Earl Grey tea leaves. Wonderfully aromatic with faint zesty orange oils.

Taste:

Black tea leaves with faint smokiness and zesty orange. Relatively dry with a good balance between sugar and tea tannins.

Aftertaste:

Long, black tea finish with very faint charcoal and smoke.

Overall:

Wonderfully fragrant Earl Grey tea with delicate smoke and orange notes. As liqueurs go this is on the dry side.
