Orange Peel Chenpi Shoumei mini cakes are made of Fuding Dabai tea leaves blended with the super aromatic and natural Chinese "Chenpi" (sun-dried tangerine peel). Dabai trees here are 15 years old and they grow at 800 meters above sea level, in the town of Zhenghe, Fujian Province. The soil here has a reddish-yellow colour, rich in minerals and organic nutrients.
These cakes are made following the traditional white tea processing: plucking - withering - drying - pressing to a cake. The white tea cake is a Shoumei grade (larger and more mature tea leaves) with the adding of natural orange peel. Each tea cake is pressed in a 5-6 gr. cake which is very convenient to carry and brew.

As a good Shoumei (higher proportion of larger leaves) the tea is very robust, suitable to many brewing styles, in small teapot or gaiwan, in a mug or in a large teapot. It is fantastic to brew by decoction/boiled on the stove or in a kettle.
Depending on how light or strong you brew the mini cakes, the flavours can range from fragrant, softly sweet and light, to thick and rich, with a smooth and super satisfying honey-like character. The chenpi (aged tangerine peel) match perfectly the aged Shoumei bringing slightly citrusy and herbal/balsamic notes into play.
