From Chicago Tea Garden

These tiny oranges known as clementines in the United States are hollowed out and filled with tea, then aged. These were obtained in Guandong, China in 2005 and since then have been aged in man-made pu-erh caves in the United States. The leaves when steeped have a zesty orange smell – the tea is overall smooth and malty with hints of orange, especially if you use part of the rind while steeping.

Note: 50grams will get you 3 tiny oranges.

Fun presentation, but was a bit disappointed that there was little to no citrus flavoring. The first time I prepared it I made several steepings (with a little bit of the rind) and found each one to be a bit lighter than I usually like pu-ehr. The second time I prepared it, I just threw all the tea and about half the rind into my tea pot, rinsed it, then poured boiling water and let it sit for about 4 – 5 minutes and got a really pleasant, deeper flavored pu-ehr (though not necessarily rich or complex). My partner is not a huge pu-ehr fan but he enjoyed the tea brewed this way, and this is definitely my preference. We got two good brewings of the tea done this way.

Smooth with a deep flavour.

Initially I steeped this tea WITHOUT the orange peel, but then added in a bit of the peel to see if it added any significant flavor. Overall I liked it more with a bit of orange peel added in. It’s definitely not the best Puer that I’ve ever tried, but I thought it was pretty decent. The unique presentation made it a tea that I absolutely had to buy. Also, the price is reasonable.

Earthy, smooth, with a subtle citrus finish. Not bad, but not my favorite either. More of a novelty item than a quality pu-erh.

Amazing! I am not a Pu-erh person, as this is only my third try. I really liked this – very smooth, very pleasant, with a nice bit of orange. Earthy like the good clean dirt of a forest fllor. May be a hint of pine.
