Xinhui Mandarin Black Tea
This tea teases the taste buds with tantalizing citrus notes. Stuffed in an authentic, dried Xinhui mandarin is Gongting shu puerh tea that has been aged for 9 years. Gongting is the highest grade of puerh leaf quality. This tea is very smooth, full bodied, with a strong citrus flavor. Great for puerh tea beginners and puerh tea lovers alike.
The dried orange shell is authentic Xinhui mandarin from Guangdong province. Traditional Chinese medicine regards Xinhui mandarin skin as great for soothing the lungs and throat, and for reducing excessive body heat.
Each one weighs about 28-40g, good for multiple steeping sessions. If desired, break off a few small pieces of the mandarin shell to steep along with the tea!
