    More of a coffee drinker but of teas, Jasmine, Oolong (specifically Ti Kuan Yin), orange spice or mint herbals and for black teas, orange pekoe.

    I've kind of rediscovered orange pekoe recently because my mom bought me some.

    It's ironic tea-wise, because I live in England, and she lives in Canada. She found an orange pekoe tea tin that she loved though and thought I would enjoy, which I do...and the tea is lovely.

    Was it Earl Grey?

    Nooo...those are totally different blends, aren't they? I love Earl Grey though and have been drinking that pretty routinely for years.

    I think the orange pekoe that she bought me was by Tetley or something like that... I bought some more for myself over here recently though. But I'm pretty sure Earl Grey and orange pekoe are different black tea blends.

    Earl Grey is an orange pekoe but it's subcategorised as a flowery broken orange pekoe. It's my favourite.

    Interesting, I did not know that. I've tended to see "orange pekoe" and "earl grey" as separate blends but I guess Earl Grey is an elaboration/subcategory of orange pekoe, as you say. (I'm a tea enthusiast but hardly an expert.)

    I love Earl Grey, I think if I had to swear off all other teas and keep one blend only, it would probably be my choice.

    That's an alternate name for Ti Kuan Yin.

    Some trivia for a tea expert from a casual tea drinker who only knows what she likes. Direct translation is Ti = Iron or steel, Kuan Yin = Goddess. So Iron Buddha is a mistranslation.
