Had this earlier but didn’t take notes. I loved it. At first, I didn’t know how to prepare it. lol No way that huge tangerine would fit into anything I own. I just sprinkled the Pu-erh out from the inside of the tangerine (the whole thing weighs about 32g), then I broke off the tangerine skin to weigh 2 grams. It had that tangy tangerine flavor that I adore, and the Pu-erh was very smooth. No fishy taste, no strong leather taste. This may be a good one for someone who likes tangerine, wants to drink Pu-erh for health benefits but doesn’t like the usual strong earthy taste. Surprisingly it was only slightly earthy, barely any leather (zero fishy, zero dirt) but it was rich, full-bodied. I couldn’t select “tangerine” in the flavors so I selected “orange” but it’s definitely tangerine.
I’ll have to revisit this one soon to get a better flavor profile. My power went out in the middle for about an hour and well, that wasn’t fun lol. I wasn’t quite sure where I left off when it went out.
