Menghai Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cured in King Orange Fruit

$8.00 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop

This is a lovely and special tea.  3 years aged Menghai Te Ji and Grade 3 (refers to leaf size) has been stuffed into a fresh King Orange and then cured together.  The Pu-erh has absorbed some of the citrus taste and it's both tasty and subtle.  I prefer to break in half and brew the pu-erh in the orange all together.  If you prefer less citrus taste you can remove the tea from the dried rind and brew separately.

King Orange is a small green orange which originates from Vietnam but is now grown in Southern Yunnan.  It is known in Vietnam as Cam sành.  It is tasty to eat by itself and although rather small and green it's sweet and pungent.  These were harvested in July 2018 and contain 2015 harvested and wet piled Menghai pu-erh tea.

New Batch as of August 2018
