Mini Orange Pu-erh (cooked)
This is a matured fermented tea from Yunnan Province, in South-West China. Compressed and stuffed into a special type of small Chinese oranges, fully sun-dried and produced from 15 year old orange trees. This Pu-erh has a slightly earthy taste combined with the flavour of its orange container and, like most Pu-erh teas, its quality and taste improves with age.
Pu-erh teas are reputed for their medicinal properties; research has confirmed that they help lower cholesterol and aid digestion.
