Tangerine Tuxedo is a popular style of tea in China. This unique treat is made by hollowing out a tangerine, filling it with black tea and then letting it dry as one. The fruit infuses the leaves with its citrus notes, smoothing out the earthy tea when brewed. Its traditional use is for soothing the stomach and is commonly drunk in the winter months or after meals.
To prepare, we recommend you break open the tangerine, and brew the tea and the peel together, the same as you would other black teas. Each tangerine makes about 2-3 cups of tea. 2 Ounces (about 6-8 pieces)
