Special Thanks to John R for this one!

The process of this amazes me!

“A delicious high quality pu-erh leaf has been stuffed into the rind of a whole tangerine! The leaves were stuffed in wet, and then allowed to dry in the sun for about a week. The smell and taste of citrus is VERY present in this tea. If you want extra citrus taste, break some of the dried tangerine rind and brew with the tea together.”

I really like this!

I took the “top” and some pu-erh along with a small chunk that was in with the loose inside the tangerine. I’m going to send the brunt of the base and rest of the pu-erh over to my Sororitea Sister LiberTeas to see what see thinks.

I REALLY like this! I could see how purist of pu-erh might not because this IS very orangy…it doesn’t have that stereotypical pu-erh aroma or taste. BUT…I wouldn’t call myself a pu-erh purist and many of you know I like to try different things :)

I really like this because it IS different and because of the process AND the tangerine flavor is really true and juicy!

I’m so blessed I was able to try this one! Thanks again John R

You are my hero for liking this one. I Still have one whole tangerine left. I’m trying to ‘forget’ about it. So I can retry it objectively without being biased.

And you ARE lucky, yunnan sourcing stopped shipping this around 6-7 months ago.

:) I have to admit was was worried when I read your note….eeeeek…perhaps I like it for the wrong reasons but it just tickled my tea fantsy for some reason! LOL :)

well, I am a bit more of a purist for puerh. So that might be 70% of it. But that’s why I gave most away but saved some to retying later. I feel sometimes coming back to a tea lets you appreciate it once you go past the ‘shock’ of something unexpected.
