Aged Fuding Chen Pi White Tea, 2010
The Emperor of All under Heaven once summoned the wise tea master Lao Cha and told him:
– Tea Master, you know how much I enjoy White Tea. But sometimes I want to try something new, something unusual, something that will be tasty and at the same time will entertain my guests. Go and come up with a tea that will make me happy.
The Wise Tea Master left the court and came back later with White Tea that was nestled inside of a dried peel of a tangerine. The sweet taste of tea nicely mixed with the gentle sourness of tangerine and all the guests were in awe. The Emperor of All under Heaven was very pleased.
When ripping off the wrapping paper, you will get a sweet orange aroma. The orange peel ball has been split into two parts with a circular incision. The upper part is the “lid” and the lower part is the “body”, acting as a container, stuffed with dry aged Fuding White Tea leaves. Tea leaves are highly absorbent and can adopt a fragrance of anything they come in contact with. Putting dried leaves inside of the peel of a tangerine created a new flavor of tea that is slightly sweet and has an orange aroma.
