Tangerine Tuxedo, Black Loose Leaf Tea, One
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.
