Our 2023 Lunar New Year collection features festive mandarin oranges, a symbol of luck and fortune for the year ahead. 

Mandarin Puerh | 大紅柑

 Tasting notes: Citrus, earthy, tangy

Ripe Puerh tea (2012):
 Origin: Menghai, Yunnan, China
 Cultivar: 大葉種 Puerh Assamica
 Oxidation: ⦿⦿⦿⦿⦿

Mandarins (2017):
 Origin:  Xinhui, Guangdong, China


To make this statement tea, ripe mandarins from Xinhui - the capital of chenpi (citrus peel) production - are carefully hollowed out, then filled with ripe Puerh tea and left to dry for the tea to absorb the citrus oils.

The tea used is Palace Puerh: a top grade ripe Puerh from Yunnan China, harvested in spring 2012. Once stuffed with tea, the mandarins are dried in a carefully controlled environment: if they dry too fast, the tea will not absorb the oils enough. Too slow, and they could get mouldy.

These high grade mandarins are fully ripe before being harvested, giving a sweet, robust citrus flavour. They were made in 2017 and have been ageing for 5 years. The final result is a smooth, mellow tea with a good balance of tea and sweet citrus flavours, and a long-lasting aftertaste.


Serving
We recommend breaking up the citrus peel into small pieces first, then portioning out the tea and peel for each serving.

 

First, shake some tea out of the mandarin to make space, then break the mandarin peel up into small pieces, going around the edge. Then put a mixture of tea and peel in your brewing vessel and brew as normal.
