Weight: 100 grams (as 14 individually wrapped pieces, depending on the size of the Green Mandarin)
Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented)
Production area: Ripe Pu-erh is from Yunnan Province, China; Green Mandarin peel is from Xinhui, Guangdong Province, China

Taste characteristics:
Handcrafted, the Green Mandarin Tuo Cha is made with a 10-year-old ripe Tuo Cha (a small nugget compressed with ripe pu-erh leaves) stuffed inside the shell of a green mandarin. The earthy flavor of the ripe pu-erh is offset by the tangy and citrus flavor from the green mandarin, resulting in a perfectly balanced and delicious drink. Mandarin peel is called chenpi in Chinese, which means aged peels. Aged chenpi is considered collectibles in China due to purported medicinal properties. The most renowned producing area of mandarins is a small town in Southern China called Xinhui. This tea was sourced from a reputable factory in this town. This tea is very easy to prepare. Simply unwrap, pour hot water, steep briefly, and drink. The tea tastes flavorful even after multiple steepings.

Prepare 6 ounces of hot water. Unwrap a Green Mandarin Tuo Cha and place it into a cup, teapot or gaiwan. Pour boiling water over the tuo cha, wait 5 seconds and pour out. This is just a rinse so do not drink this first brew. Pour hot water again over the green mandarin and start steeping according to the recommended steeping times below.

Love! 04/05/2023
I love the tuo cha in the dried mini orange. I only drink the tuo cha because it is so easy to portion for my morning tea: wrapped in paper and just the right size for my tea pot. The Green Mandarin is a great addition for variety! Love the flavor. The regular tuo cha seems a bit boring now. I drink both regularly.
Our responseThank you for taking the time to write such a nice review on the Green Mandarin Tuo Cha. Your review will be so helpful for those who are contemplating buying this tea.

Everyday tea drinking 01/07/2020

I love the idea of trying different piers. I drink them every morning and I have several different ones & they all taste slight different. I must admit I didn’t like the purer with the green mandarin wrap. I drink oolong in the afternoon & yours was very refreshing.
Our responseWe are glad you found the teas you like and enjoy them every day.
