Description

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.
