Wild Orange Pu-erh
These tiny oranges known as clementines in the United States are hollowed out and filled with tea, then aged. These were obtained in Guandong, China in 2005 and since then have been aged in man-made pu-erh caves in the United States. The leaves when steeped have a zesty orange smell - the tea is overall smooth and malty with hints of orange, especially if you use part of the rind while steeping.

|I had only had pu-erh once before and thought it was ok, but nothing to get excited about. This didn't really change my mind, but I found it to have an intriguing earthy smell and taste, set off well by putting some skin in to brew with it. Mine didn't have a zesty orange taste, but was rather a pleasant, mild, smooth addition. I really did like it, which surprised me|
