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.

We highly recommend reviewing the “Brewing Recommendations” tab above in order to get the best results.

Grandpa Style!

Saw how cold it was going to be on the day I was in office last week and immediately reached for one of Bitterleaf’s ‘In The Mood For Tea’ stuffed mandarin oranges to sip on throughout the day! This one is the Jinggu white tea and, though it’s definitely much less sweet than the black tea version I had not very long ago, it is still aromatic and delicious in its own distinct way. I definitely get more of that deep and soothing medicinal and coating flavour of orange that I find in most chenpi teas, but it almost feels closer to snow chrysanthemum in that it also has the pungent florals and herbaceous notes of dill to complete and round out the profile. It’s delicious and warming on this cold day and there’s really not much else I could ask for in this moment!

(I did steep the whole stuffed mandarin; just cracked it in half first)
