At O2H Tea, we passionately care about offering world's most exquisite teas that were just waiting to be enjoyed in a cup in the most magical way.

Here we introduce one of Tangerine Pu-erh Tea, that's a balanced cup ideal for all tea lovers. Tangerine Pu-errh Tea is rapidly proving popular, as they are delicious and have tons of health benefits. Let's look at the science behind making Tangerine Pu-erh Tea, its features, storage methods, and best times for enjoying it.


How is Tangerine Pu-erh Tea Made?

Pu-erh Tea Fermentation Process

In contrast to how other shaded teas are created, the best-quality pu-erh tea ferments and oxidises. It is picked, withered and then left to ferment by various microbes​. Fermentation takes weeks to months, even years. The result is a tea with a depth and richness, paired with a smooth texture.


Incorporation of Tangerine Peel

The tangerine peel adds a citrusy part to the earthly note of the Pu-erh, giving it another dimension. The tangerine peel is dried and then aged together with the Pu-erh leaves, and the two flavours fuse together through the aging process.Our high-quality selection of tangerine peel is dried, and as well as the aged Pu-erh leaves, is treated as a premium product. By keeping a strict attention to quality control standards, we strive to create a balance of flavours.​ 

Production Process

The selection of good-quality new or yellow tangerine peels is very important because the peels are choosen for drying under the sun. After drying and cooling in the shadow, the finished product thus obtained​​ is filled with well-matured Pu-erh tea and left to rest so as to let both the aromas mature and become friends. Besides the nice taste, it also has the special health benefits of Pu-erh tea & tangerine peel.


What is the Difference Between Tangerine Pu-erh Tea and Regular Pu-erh Tea?

  • Flavor Profiles

In addition to its rich earthiness, the tangerine peel gives Tangerine Pu-erh Tea a hint of fresh lemon or lime citrusy aroma and taste. A cup of Tangerine Pu-erh Tea is for people who enjoy a layered flavor profile.

Details: Regular Pu-erh tea has its authentic strong earthiness, while the added tangerine peel gives it a hint of fresh citrus aroma and taste.


  • Health Benefits

Both types of Pu-erh are fair and good for your health (digestion, losing the weight, cardiovascular benefits and so on), with additional benefits (vitamin C, anti-oxydant, strengthening the immune system) from the tangerine peel.


  • Aging and Storage Methods

Tangerine Pu-erh tea​​ is made like most Pu-erh tea, however, the tangerine peel can affect the aging process and typically results in a milder and sweeter tasting Pu-erh tea. Pu-erh should be stored in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and away from strong odours​.


How Long Can You Store Tangerine Pu-erh Tea?


  • Optimal Storage Conditions

Tangerine Pu-erh Tea can be stored in an airtight container, and in cool, dry and dark surroundings, to retain its flavour and freshness. Make sure it does not get in contact with moisture, heat, or strong odours, as this affects the tea. If well stowed, Tangerine Pu-erh Tea can stay great for years, with its flavours maturing and becoming deeper and stronger. ​(Chinese Teas 101) ​(Simpltea)


  • Recognizing Properly Stored vs. Improperly Stored Tea

Any properly stored Tangerine Pu-erh Tea should retain its aroma and essence. If the tea appears yellow or dark-coloured, smells mouldy, has an off-taste, etc., then it has been stored improperly, and the tea should be tossed​ 


What is the Best Time to Drink Tangerine Pu-erh Tea?

 Tangerine Pu-erh Tea is also good for any time of day. In the morning, it provides a soft energy boost. In the afternoon, it helps to digest your meal. And in the evening it can aid in a good night’s rest​.​
