Aside from just being a tasty companion to tea, these little Xinhui oranges are also popular in China for their medicinal properties. These oranges were processed when young and green, giving them a slightly bitter flavor compared to the ripened ones used in Chinese medicine. The oranges have been half-sun baked, which means that they are dried in a combination of sun and oven, offering a balance of quality and consistency.

The results for brewing this tea can vary greatly depending on the brewing method and parameters. Our preferred method is Pour Over:
First, cut slits or holes in the bottom and sides of the oranges for water to filter out.
Place the orange in a filter over your cup
Pour hot water (90c to boiling) into the mandarin gently
After several infusions the tea flavor may become a bit weak, you can remove the orange part and continue to brew as you normally would in a cup or teapot.
