From Gold Horse Brand

This is a delicious high quality pu-erh leaf that 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 enjoy extra citrus flavor, break off some of the dried tangerine rind and brew it with the tea.

I purchased this at the Aroma Tea Shop in San Francisco. This is just such a cute presentation, pu-erh tea cooked in a tangerine. I had to try it!

I let this steep for 3 minutes with boiling water. In hindsight, that may have been a bit too much so I will need to do more experiments. I saw on another website people had broken up parts of the peel to brew with the tea so that would also be fun to try. I also forgot to rinse this off before brewing.

I got a very dark liquor but it is very smooth and rich with no hint of astringency. A tiny bit of shiitake mushroom with some chocolate notes. I’m getting a bit of tangerine in the finish nothing like a flavored tea, this is very subtle. There is some smoke in the finish. Even with the stronger steeping this is a very mellow and easygoing tea.

One tangerine yields about 2 small or one large pot of tea. I don’t know if I have time this morning for multiple infusions which is a bit sad. Pu-erh is a tea best left for the weekends!

I did manage to get a second infusion. This time I tried for one minute with boiling water with a tiny bit of the peel thrown in for good measure. This produced a milder but still flavorful version of the first steep. Now I am getting a bit of spice in the cup as well. It’s hard to say which one I prefer more!

sounds good…I’m gonna finish the Rishi Puerh sample you gave me for lunch today. I find I could drink several cups of Puerh weekly if I kept it in stock, It is highly drinkable IMHO! Catch ya later…..:))

I purchased this from a seller on eBay from China. Orange is one of my favourite flavours and aromas so when I saw exactly what this tea was I fell in love with the idea of it being naturally flavoured. It arrived today after weeks of waiting.

My tea examination contains some of the tangerine casing as well as the pu’erh tea.

The smell is very pleasing, you have the freshness of the pu’erh and the slight sweetness citrus smell from the tangerine.

Colour is a warm, dark reddy brown (overall colour would be medium).

Taste wise this tea is beautiful. With the fresh and light pu’erh tea taste you also have a wonderfully uplifting tangerine taste that manages to also stay light and fresh. Very easy to drink and is now one of my favourite tea purchases.

I got 100g (three tangerines) of tea for roughly £6.50 including shipping. Bargain!

The preparation time was what I was advised from the seller and I would say that it is a decent strength and is about right for me. If you want a very strong brew then leave it in for say 2 minutes. You can also re use the tea three times but you must double the steeping time. So first steep use is 1 minute, second steep use is 2 minutes and so on.
