Angel's Comment:

This Tangerine Pu-erh tea is a great choice for drinking in cold autumn and winter to warm you up and soothe throat.

Tea has been used with food since a long time ago; while tangerine puerh became a delicacy as it tactfully bring both taste and benefit of Puerh Tea and tangerine in one. Drinking it in cold autumn and winter can warm stomach. Broke up and brew the tangerine peel with puerh tea that can get well-balanced both of orange and puerh taste and health benefits.

Tea Bush

Native to Menghai County, Xishuangbanna, the Menghai large leaf tea tree species was rated as the most improved national tea variety in 1984. This species has the ability to grow 7 m tall in the wild and its leaves are bold green and much larger than common varieties. The buds of this species are yellowish green and covered in fuzz. The tea leaves of this tree are high in phytochemicals; one tea bud with two leaves contains 2.3% of amino acids, 32.8% of polyphenolic compounds, 4.1% of caffeine and 18.2% of catechuic acid. As a result, pu-erh tea made from the Menghai species is high quality, rich in flavor, with a soft taste and a full-bodied tea essence.
