Rich and smooth, this tea is as delicious to drink as it is fun to look at. The essence of sour tangerine is the perfect balance for a smooth shou puerh. A perfect introduction for those wishing to explore Puerh.
Each stuffed miniature Mandarin orange is enough for one pot of tea, which you can re-steep several times. You may remove the tea from the fruit and brew or puncture the fruit several times with a tea needle to brew it with the peel. You can explore the nuances in flavor depending upon how you brew and where you pour the water, either on the side or on top of the tea. We recommend short steeps.
Sour tangerines from Xinhui region of Guandong province have been revered for centuries for their medicinal properties. This refreshing citrus is a perfect match for the smooth richness of Shou Puerh.
The pulp is removed from the fruit and filled with ripe puerh.
The tea and fruit are then dried.
