Angel's Comment:

The key fragrance note: green mandarin; the compound note is the honey and sweet aroma of black tea. Sweet, gentle and refreshing.

This black tea selects Yingde black tea from Guangdong and small green mandarin from Xinhui as raw materials. It is made by filling the black tea into the green mandarin peel and drying it in the sun. Thus, the fragrances of black tea and citrus merge together. After brewing, the liquid taste sweet with the sour and refreshing notes from the green mandarin peel. It is neither bitter nor astringent. It can be brewed or boiled. In addition, it may be used to make a wonderful cold brew in the summer.


You may see some ‘white frost’ forming on the outer surface of the orange peel. This does not mean that the dried orange is starting to mold: in fact, it is actually a kind of crystallization that occurs during the baking process, where the citrus oil of the peel will be released and then crystallized into the sugary substance. According to some research, this frost is not only harmless but also beneficial to the human body.

Origin - Green Mandarin

Meanwhile, Xinhui, Guangzhou has a reputation as “the hometown of Chenpi”, or tangerine, and Teavivre’s mandarin orange comes from the Tianma district here. This district is the core region for orange peels used in tea-making and is in an alluvial plain of the Pearl River Delta, meaning its land is fertile and rich with organic matter. The irrigation water here is a special mix of seawater and fresh water, and with the natural mountain barrier on three sides, the environment here further improves the quality of the Xinhui mandarin orange.

Tea Farmer

Mr. Yi was born in Yingde, Guangdong. Under the influence of his father's generation, he has lived in the Hua Qiao tea farm in Yingde since he was a child. He has been immersed in various tea planting, picking, withering, rolling and cutting, fermentation, drying and other processes. He has a strong interest in tea production. So he stayed and worked in the tea farm. Later, the scale of Hua Qiao tea farm increased, from the barren hills and mountains in the past to the tea gardens that can today be seen everywhere. The government established Yinghong Town, and the Hua Qiao tea farm became today's Guangdong Yinghong Tea Industry Co., Ltd.
