Tangerines are dried and skillfully hollowed out before being filled with whole-leaf Ripe Puerh to make this artisanal tea. The combination of the warming citrus with the earthy flavour of Puerh is soothing and nourishing - a good tea to have when you’re feeling under the weather. 

In fact, dried tangerine peel is commonly used as an ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine to soothe coughs, sore throats, dry up mucus, reduce nausea and aid digestion. 

This, in addition to Ripe Puerh’s digestive benefits, makes Tangerine Puerh a welcome health boost. Long-term Puerh drinking may also help reduce cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of cancer.

For this batch, our tangerines are sourced from Meijiang, Xinhui in Guangdong, the home of dried tangerine peel, harvested in 2022. The ripe Puerh tea is a top grade Palace Puerh from the first harvest in Menghai, Yunnan in 2017. Once stuffed with tea, the tangerines are then dried in the sun.

Tangerine Puerh is easy to brew with any teaware or brewing method. Just pop in a tangerine, add hot water and enjoy!

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
1 piece | per 150-200ml | 98°C | 1 min
+10s per steep for at least 7 steeps
(For a lighter brew, use half a tangerine)

Western style (Teapot)
1 piece | per 300ml | 95°C | 3 mins
+1 min per steep for at least 3 steeps

Pro tip: Pour the water stream directly onto the tangerine peel for a more citrusy brew, and onto the tea leaves for an earthier brew.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
