When making mandarin orange Pu-erh tea, tea makers choose Pu-erh teas of different grade to match with mandarin orange peels based on the degree of ripeness. The green mandarin orange is an unripe fruit, whose fragrance is heavy and a little sour, so be blended with mellow and aged ripened pu-erh teas, such as the first-grade Pu-erh tea. However, ripened mandarin orange has high sweetness, which needs to be matched with palace grade Pu-erh tea which has tender tea buds and leaves and soft taste. But no matter what Pu-erh grade we choose, we can not use the same year’s ripened P-erh tea to make Mandarin Orange Pu-erh Tea. Because new pu-erh tea has some pile-fermentation flavor, it will affect the quality of teas.
TeaVivre’s Green Mandarin Orange Ripened Pu-erh Tea, made with mandarin orange picked in July, 2017 and 2015 palace ripened Pu-erh tea, is wrapped with individual tissue paper, which is easy to store, carry and brew. Once opened, it will have an appealing citrus flavor to greet your nose and refresh your mind. Infused the entire orange with hot water, the tea texture will be soaked out of the peel, which yields a smooth and soft taste with a touch of sweetness and distinct fruit flavor. Most tea beginners do not like the aroma and the taste of ripened Pu-erh teas, but many of them are interested in drinking teas because of this Green Mandarin Orange Ripened Pu-erh Tea which is blended with fresh citrus fragrance. If you are one of them, then it deserves you to have a try.
Ps:You may see a layer of “white frost” that forms on the outside surface of the Mandarin orange ripened Pu-erh tea, but this doesn’t mean that the dried mandarin orange shells are going to become moldy. In fact, it is a kind of crystallization, during the baking process, the citrus oil of the mandarin peel will be released and then crystallized into a white substance, which contains a certain amount of sugar. According to the research, the “white frost” is not only harmless, but also very beneficial to human body.
A perfect combination of mandarin orange and palace ripened Pu-erh tea, it is a distinctive Pu-erh tea that tastes smooth and soft with an intoxicating citrus fragrance undertone.
Before brewing the tea, we need to check if the peel has any cracks. If the tea has some cracks and then we can brew it directly; if not, we need to use tea needle to poke a few holes which is convenient to soak Pu-erh taste. Besides, when pouring water, we should try to inject the water into the opening part at the top of the tea, through this, we can let the Pu-erh tea Flavor fully mixed with fruit peel flavor. At last, when the taste fades, we can put the whole into the teapot to cook.
The fresh tea leaves for producing pu-erh tea come from Jiu Tai Po tea garden, which is located in pu’er city with the highest elevation reaches at 2016 meters. This tea garden is shrouded by a variety of ecological tea plantations, such as Taidi cha (plantation tea) growing area, old tea tree and ancient tea tree growing areas. Among them, the old tea tree and ancient tea tree growing area are located on a relatively higher elevation in Jiu Tai Po tea garden, covered with original forests.
The position where the tea garden located is in a high altitude that makes no cars could pass but to climb the mountain on foot. Tea from old and ancient tea trees growing in a natural environment without human intervention. Therefore, the poultry manure is considered to be one of the best plant fertilizers out there.
In recent years, Jiu Tai Po tea garden has begun to grow Taidi cha. Basically, all of these Taidi tea plants come from Jinggu Dabai Cha. There, leaves from Daiba Cha are more expensive than old tea trees, so you don't need to worry about buying a half-fake tea that mixed with Taidi cha and old tea trees.
To the people who enjoy our Dragon Ball Teas, you must be familiar with this tea farmer- Mr. Yang who has more than 30 years tea-making experience and already be good friends with our TeaVivre.
Mr. Yang has been always engrossed in how to make perfect Dragon Ball Teas and has successively made Yunnan Rose Dragon Ball Black Tea, Moonlight Dragon Ball White Tea and Ancient Tree Dragon Ball Raw Pu-erh Tea which contain many kinds of flowers or pure tea balls. As recently the citrus Pu-erh teas are popular, he began to focus on the green mandarin orange which has high value, good taste and nice health function. In order to get good-quality green mandarin orange, he went for a field trip to Xinhui, Guangzhou Province to see the fruit gardens and signed a long-term supply contract after choosing a satisfied fruit garden. Owned two good quality materials- Pu-erh and green mandarin orange, the finished product made by Mr. Yang deserves to be expected.
Pu’er City, formerly called Simao, is a prefecture-level city in southern Yunnan province. Elevations range from 317 to 3370 meters with wide-ranging of ancient tea trees. Pu'er city was identified as the hometown of Pu-erh teas, is well-known as the “birthplace of Tea” and the heartland of the origin place of tea trees in the world. Being one of the original places where Pu-erh tea was produced, Pu’er city obtains rich resources of tea varieties. Generally, it can be divided in to three types:
* Original Wild Ancient Tea Trees and Wild Tea Populations* Transitive Type Ancient Tea Trees* Cultivation Type Ancient Tea Trees
These tea trees grow in high altitudes covered by large area of primeval forests, and all the natural ecosystems have been well-protected which makes it becomes a very ideal place for an optimal cultivation and natural drainage. According to the 2007 satellite positioning survey results, the old tea tree resources include ancient tea garden and ancient tea tree populations are more than 100 mu in Pu-erh City.
Xinhui, Guangzhou has a reputation as “the hometown of Chenpi (tangerine)”, and TeaVivre’s mandarin orange is from Tianma district of Xinhui. Tianma, the core region of Xinhui tangerine peel, is in alluvial plain of the Pearl River Delta, which has fertile land and rich organic matter. The irrigation water is the special water quality mixed by seawater and fresh water, and plus the natural barrier surrounded by mountains on three sides, which make the Xinhui mandarin orange better.
Yunnan large-leaf tree is Chinese famous tea varieties, which mainly includes Mengku large-leaf tree, Fengqing large-leaf tree and Menghai large-leaf tree and etc, and is suitable for making black and Pu-erh teas.
Xinghui Mandarin Orange is an excellent variety selected by Xinhui fruit growers during the long planting history, and its peel and pulp are edible and can be made into medicine. Because of its unique good quality, in Ming and Qing Dynasties it had been chosen as a "tribute". Green Mandarin Orange is the unripe Xinhui Mandarin Orange and named because of the small fruit and green peel, while the ripened fruit is called Mandarin Orange.
Citrus peel brewed with tea, was mentioned early in The Classic of Tea wriiten by Tea Sage-Luyu, but popular in recent years. It is said that the citrus tea was invented by a Jingshi of Daoguang region called Luo Tianchi. Luo Tianchi liked to drink Pu-erh tea and in an autumn day, he had a headache and was reading while drinking tea when he was resting at home. His wife prepared citrus water for him, but he mistook it for the boiled water and poured into tea cup. Then he found it is citrus water, in order not to waste it, he took a sip. Suddenly the fruit flavor of citrus and mellow flavor of Pu-erh surrounded him, he felt comfortable. After several cups, he felt his sour throat better and phlegm less now, from that day on, he loved drinking Pu-erh tea with citrus peel. Man relatives knew he loved citrus peel, so they specially sent him many Xinhui Mandarin Oranges. He thought that Pu-erh tea is the aged the better, and the same with the functions of citrus peel, so why not combine the two together? Thus, the citrus Pu-erh tea was invented.

Wow :-) What a surprise! Like somebody else has already mentioned, I am not so fond of any flavored teas, but this combination of tasty ripe pu-erh and aromatic mandarin skin... Wonderful! On the first try, I felt that the mandarin aroma was a little overwhelming. So the next time, I broke the ball into a few pieces, and only used about 1/3rd of the mandarin peel with all the pu-erh that came with it. It made it taste and smell perfect! ... And then I used the rest of the peel with some other ripe pu-erh from my stash :-) Highly recommend this tea to everybody!
This is a very unusual tea. The shops close to home so just do not find. This tea is best to buy a gift! In order to combat the spot!
EXQUISITE !! I normally do NOT like teas with "flavour". But this tea is like no other. Somehow there is a merging of two distinct tastes. Picture the flavour of a perfectly ripe mandarin, and the flavour of a soft mellow Puerh tea. Merge them together into a singular taste. It is AWESOME. I already reordered a large bag. These will sell fast once they catch on!!
Reply: We should brew the tea with the orange peel together, you can use a tea needle to poke a few holes on the orange peel which is convenient to soak Pu-erh taste.
