Ripe Pu-erh in Tangerine


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 wet leaves are stuffed into the Tangerine, then allowed to dry for about a week in the sun enriching the taste of the leaves.  Each Tangerine is approximately 30 grams.  

Why we selected this tea. The flavor of this tea is unmistakable.  The ripe tea has been aged 4 years prior to stuffing into the fruit which gives the base tea a bit more character.   The taste is so tangy!

Taste profile.  The smell and taste of this tea is very citrusy.  It is refreshing and has plenty of lingering flavor.  If you want to heighten the citrus flavors, break some of the dried Tangerine rind and brew it with the tea.

Brewing suggestions.  Use water at boiling temperature.  A teaspoon of leaf should be plenty for 8-12 ounces of water.  Steep for 2-3 minutes.  It will offer multiple steeps.
