From Enjoying Tea

The qualities one would look for in an aged, black or green pu-erh, musty character, assertive earthy tones, will generally not be found to the same degree in a white. Instead, white pu-erhs typically greet the pallet with warm notes of vanilla, early spring grass and the subtle character of a lightly roasted mountain oolong. Besides the obvious fact that the tea is packed in an orange, the care of craftsmanship used to get it in there cannot be underestimated. From the careful plucking of centuries old tea bushes, to the rolling on wide wicker baskets to the natural wood fires used to flash heat the mandarin orange peel, everything is done entirely by hand.

The cup it produces is outstanding. A light yellow liquor resembling camomile tea leads to a medium body with a gentle astringent assertiveness, sweet notes of citrus, honey and vanilla and a surprisingly clean finish. One of the China’s most interesting and uniquely rare teas!

This tea is quite interesting looking, as it’s packaged in a little mandarin tangerine. You can add as much or as little as you like of the peel! It is quite prone to bitterness, so be mindful of the temperature. The orange is a nice compliment without overpowering the tea. There are also green and black tea variations, but I haven’t tried them yet.
