Angel's Comment:

This Chenpi Herbal Tea is a great daily drinking for people who have digestive problems or cough, phlegm problems.

TeaVivre’s Chenpi strips are all handmade, with a scarlet-orange outer skin and pale, yellowish-white inner skin. The dry peel is thick yet fragile, and when brewed in hot water, the liquid immediately steeps out as a bright yellowish green with a heavy tangerine fragrance. It taste mellow and sweet without being sour or bitter in the slightest - and also promotes your appetite! Chenpi can be brewed on its own or with tea of another type, or even used in cooking.

Note: Some of the tangerine peels have small white or black spots on the outside - this is a natural phenomenon in the growth of the fruit, and not a sign of mold.

Characteristics

It is well known that tangerines are sweet and delicious, and rich in vitamin C. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the peels are called “Chenpi”.

The source of bitterness in the peels comes from limonoids, represented by lemon glycosides; this kind of limonoid is mild and soluble, and beneficial for digestion. When cooking with tangerine peels, this bitterness mixes and reconciles with other flavors, and as a result produces a special, unique taste.

Note: Fresh tangerine peels contain a lot of volatile oils, which may cause stomach irritation. Fresh peels do not have the same medicinal effects as Chenpi, and as such are not suitable for drinking like this dried Chenpi is.
