Xingyang has painstakingly removed the pulp from green mandarin oranges and stuffed them with a beautiful budset shu pu’er to infuse with the citrus aroma over time. These little manadarin oranges are great in a big pot that you can keep refilling all day. The densely stuffed orange takes so long to open up that you can easily get a dozen infusions. The mandarin flavor is bright and tropical with notes of honeysuckle, jasmine and cream to compliment the superbly sweet and clean brown sugar flavor of the shu pu’er.
'Whether it’s pressed with chrysanthemum and roses or stuffed into oranges and miniature clementines, there are few things more traditional that scenting pu’er. Adding traditional medicinal herbs and flowers to pu’er is, for many, both reasonable and delicious'
