Ripe Tangerine Pu-erh leaves are packed into a whole tangerine creating a tangy, sweet tasting tea. Chinese tea artisans shape and press tea into many interesting forms and fruits seeking new tastes and ways to present the leaf. In this case, the puerh leaves are stuffed into the Xinhui Green Mandarin oranges, then allowed to dry for about a week in the sun enriching the taste of the leaves. Each Tangerine is between 10-14grams. The ripe puerh has been aged 6 years prior to stuffing into the fruit which gives the base tea a bit more character. The taste is so tangy!
Flavor: A fruity, citrusy aroma.
