Xiao Qing Gan

10 years aged Cha Tou Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cured in King Orange Fruit

Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan Xiao Qing Gan

Aged ripe pu-erh tea cured in fresh king orange fruit. These small green oranges were originally brought from Vietnam, but these days they are grown in China as well. These king oranges are the pride of Tianma village (Guangdong province, Jiangmen city, Xinhui district) which is world-renowned for its
high quality fruits, especially oranges. The pu-erh is an aged 10 years old chatou, which are clotted parts of the ripe pu-erh tea, that crumble off during fermentation. Chatou is exceptionally sweet and aromatic, and goes even more steeps than most ripe pu-erh.

You can brew it in several different ways, depending on what feature you prefer to enjoy.

If you like characteristic citrusy taste, brew it as it is. The first couple of short flushes would be mostly about the orange peels, and all the complex citrusy - woodsy aromas it can release. The tea soup will be pale orange, silky and pungent, sharp with the notes of tangerine, cedar and cypress. However, it is worth it to do a longer, 4 minutes first steeping to let all the aromas come forward and blend together. For the later flushes it's recommended to break the orange in half to allow the pu-erh tea do its part.

If you prefer to enjoy the full body of the pu-erh right away, break the orange in half before steeping. For smaller tea sessions, it's enough to use only one half and keep the other for later. This way while the citrus aroma will be still present, it is fainter, more prominent in the fragrance than in the taste. The tea instantly turns into a dark brown, creamy liquor steaming herbs and raw vanilla. The flushed leaves are fresh and woodsy, like timber, but the liquor is round and steady in its flavor. It is herbal and earthy, the sharper cedar notes balanced with sweet tamarind, vanilla and chocolate.

Either way it goes countless steeps, the notes slowly smoothening with every brew. Perfect for larger tea sessions shared with your tea friends.

Each pieces are individually wrapped, weighting 9-12g.

This was my second pu-erh experience. I cut the orange in half and used half of the contents to brew. I made 13 small 20 second brews and could have done more, the flavor and color was still strong on the last one. The first brews had a very strong bitter orange peel flavor. By the fifth that has mellowed and combined smoothly with the flavor of the tea. There is some dark spice in the background, slightly like cloves. And through the whole time there is an earthy scent that you won't find often elsewhere, a bit like earthy rubber. It doesn't have a plum or raisin fruitiness like the previous pu-erh I tried. Maybe it would be there if you left out the peel. It's definitely a tea you could start in the morning and continue drinking the rest of the day. I've not encountered one that could go as long as this. I look forward to the next try of it where I'm sure I'll learn something new about it.

I strongly recommend reading the full product description before brewing as this tea can give a very wide range of looks and taste and is very adjustable to personal preference. I did the first 4 infusions by brewing the whole unbroken orange which resulted in an orange colored tea with light taste. After that I broke the orange in half and this resulted in a very dark tea more typical of aged puerh with a richer, deeper taste. Great either way, this is the first puerh tea I tried that I actually liked and would buy again.
