Our traditional Ju Pi Pu’erh is a ripe pu’erh tea stuffed into a whole tangerine! This unique bundle of pu’erh is a rarity in the West, and we are proud to carry this fine delicacy.
Ju Pi Pu’erh is crafted by stuffing pu’erh leaves in hollowed out fresh tangerines, and then flash dried under the sunlight. Afterward, the tea-stuffed tangerines are then stored in a cool dry location, allowing the tea to ferment and dry within the tangerine peel. While drying, the tea naturally absorbs the oils and flavor of the tangerine peel.
Sun-dried tangerine peel is used in Chinese cooking and traditional medicine. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, dried citrus peel is used for the fortification of the spleen, elimination of dampness, treat inflammation, enhance digestion, and to reduce phlegm. It solves digestion problems by relieving intestinal gas and bloating.
Ju Pi Pu’erh can be either steeped whole (tangerine skin and all) in a teapot, or broken up and steeped loose. The dark infusion has the distinct ripe pu’erh musty character that is known for, but is hidden beneath layers of fresh tangerine oil zing.
Ju Pi Pu’erh is a complex and fresh take on ripe pu’erh, we encourage you to infuse your tea multiple times to experience and enjoy it fully.
