A variation on the common ripe puer stuffed orange, these little Xinhui qinggan oranges offer a twist by using high quality Jinggu white tea instead. The result is a uniquely sweet and refreshing take on the stuffed manadarin.
While the orange peel naturally provides some fruit flavour in the form a tart citrus package, the white tea contributes a crisp pear flavour. Out of the 3 variations of this tea, this one is possible the most unique, like drinking the taste of summer on a cold winter day.
Aside from just being a tasty companion to tea, Xinhui oranges from Guangdong are also popular in China for their medicinal properties and therefore come at a fairly high cost. These oranges were processed when young and green, giving them a tart and slightly bitter flavour compared to the more medicinal tasting ripened oranges. The oranges have been half-sun baked, which means that they are dried in a combination of sun and oven, offering a balance of quality and consistency.
