In order to achieve this delicately flavoured Pu Erh, the tea leaves are placed in the peel of a mandarin before the fermentation is complete. As the tea ages, it absorbs the characteristic citrus aroma. This allows the taste to be much less earthy than the traditional Pu Erh, and instead the flavour is woodsy with hints of sweet orange. It does however retain its complete lack of bitterness and amazing digestive properties. This unique Pu Erh is definitely worth a try!
The same tea leaves can be infused 2 to 3 times according to the suggested method of preparation.
