Irish Breakfast Tea BOP - Broken Orange Pekoe. Orange Pekoe refers to the size of the leaf, not the quality or flavor. While Orange Pekoe teas are whole leaf teas, Broken Orange Pekoe teas are broken leaf teas. Contrary to popular belief, the term "orange" does not refer to a flavor, but rather to the Dutch House of Orange.
