From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a lovely and special tea. Gong Ting (smallest ripe pu-erh grade) has been stuffed into a fresh King Orange and then cured together. The Pu-erh has obsorbed alot of the citrus taste and it’s both tasty and subtle. I prefer to break in half and brew the pu-erh in the orange all together. If you prefer less citrus taste you can remove the tea from the dried rind and brew separately.

King Orange is a small green orange which originates from Vietnam but is now grown in Southern Yunnan. It is known in Vietnam as Cam sành. It is tasty to eat by itself and although rather small and green it’s sweet and pungent.

New Batch as of February 12th 2017

Each little “King Orange” is roughly 10 grams (+/- 1 gram) and comes individually wrapped in hypo-allergenic paper.

The orange ‘container’ is charming, and doesn’t add too much citrus flavour when steeped. The tea infuses quickly and creates a dark liquor which is neither very thin nor very thick – kind of medium for a shou. Drinking it, my tongue tingles slightly – perhaps an effect of the orange’s acidity? The scent has more citrus than the taste.

Medium steep; I smell/taste: (smell) Medium —> earth, oranges, cookies, berries(?), peach(?) , sweetness. (Taste) light to medium
-→ mud, dough, spices, berries(?), peach(?), tangy, barley, oranges. Strong sweetness.

Heavy steep; I smell/taste: (smell) Light berries(?). (Taste) slight spices. light —> tangy, oranges, dough, medium to strong -→ mud, earth.

All in all I rate a 85/100. Yummy aromas and flavours. I definitely
recommend trying. Maybe not the whole orange at first. I took a gamble and it was 95% worth it. Still I suggest using half first ;) . Relaxing cha qi and smooth huiguan.
