Orange Pekoe leaves tend to be long, thin, and wiry. It may seem counterintuitive, but these larger grades of leaves produce a lighter or paler liquor--but this is due to the fact that the leaves are whole, not broken and bruised to expose more of each leaf to the water. The taste is also lighter: more delicate than that of the Ceylon leaf's broken compatriots. The larger leaf size means the box holds 4.2oz (119grams), yielding roughly 40 cups at 23¢ per cup.
