Thumbnail of Black Pu-Erh: Mandarin Orange
In some parts of China, a popular custom is to give oranges as a gift on special occasions. The reason is that in Chinese, the word for orange sounds like "Ji" which means "good luck." One of the things you'll notice about this tea when you brew it is the absence of the heavy musty flavor characteristic of traditional pu-erh. Certainly this character is still there but it is layered beneath sweet notes of citrus, the result of being packed in the mandarin orange before fermentation. As the tea ages, it absorbs the flavor of the peel.

Mandarin packed pu-erh is one of China's more unique tea offerings. What's even better than the way this tea looks, is how it tastes.

The tea-packed oranges are stored in a cool dry location, allowing the tea to ferment and dry within the peel. As the tea ages, the peel and leaf both turn a deep brown. Fermenting in this manner infuses the leaf of earthy pu-erh with highlights of light citrus notes. The brew is clear, tending, golden yellow.

NOTE: Orange peel is not intended for consumption.

Besides the obvious fact that the tea is packed in an orange, the care of craftsmanship used to get it in there cannot be underestimated. From the careful plucking of centuries old tea bushes, to the rolling on wide wicker baskets and the natural wood fires used to flash heat the mandarin orange peel, everything is done entirely by hand. Firing the orange peel serves to kill any microorganisms that may be present.

The cup it produces is outstanding. A light yellow liquor resembling chamomile tea leads to a medium body with a gentle astringent assertiveness, sweet notes of citrus, honey and vanilla and a surprisingly clean finish. One of the China's most interesting and uniquely rare teas! (An excellent pu-erh for the first time drinker!) Make some news in your shop today.
