Aged Ripe Chenpi Pu-erh

FREE SHIPPING in US on orders over $25

  • $12.00


This unusual tea is made of ripe pu-erh tea leaves with chenpi – the Chinese term for dried peel of an orange or a tangerine. Chenpi is often used in traditional Chinese medicine, believed to be good for digestion.

In order to make this tea, the pulp of a tangerine was dug out and the empty space was then filled with leaves of ripe pu-erh. By combining the characteristics of these two different plants, the tea maker created a rich and unique flavor. To control the citrus notes in your tea, we recommend you to experiment with the amount of chenpi pieces in the teapot.
