Xiang Qing Gan - Puershutea2008 （50g)
PRODUCTION DATE: 2008
DESCRIPTION: During the Daoguang period of the Qing Dynasty, there was a scholar named Luo Jinshi. He was a painter from Xinhui, Guangdong Province, who once served as an official in Zhexidao, Yunnan (now Dali, Chuxiong, Yongchang, Jingdong area). In 1847, he returned to his hometown and brought with him pu'er tea.
At this time, Xinhui tangerine orange was very special and popular, in fact, its skin was more expensive than meat! The skin used for making the orange peel helped to regulate the liver's Qi, eliminating pharyngitis, accumulation, and stagnation. Xinhui orange peel was also known to protect the cardiovascular system. In fact, it was known that Luo Jinshi's wife would make a soup of Xinhui orange peel to help with his coughs and cold.
One day, Luo Tianchi's wife boiled a pot of orange peel soup for his cough. Believing the soup to be a mere pot of boiled water, Luo Jinshi poured the soup into a teapot filled with pu'er tea. It was at this moment that the orange peel soup and pu'er co-mingled together to create what we now know as 'Gan' pu'er. After a few drinks, Luo Jinshi felt the texture of his throat smoothen and cleansed. The next day, Luo Jinshi asked his wife to boil orange peel water once more to make pu'er tea for him, and after two days he was cured of his ailment.
The longer the storage time of pu'er tea, the more mellow and smooth the taste will become; the longer the Xinhui orange peel envelopes the pu'er leaves, the better the effect of removing phlegm and relieving cough will be. By picking the still-green orange in July and August, then tearing the orange peel open to wrap up the pu'er tea leaves, the combination of these two elements is what makes Xiao Qing Gan--the beautiful and sweet citrus-scented tea we all drink to this day.
With the aging of time, the medicinal effect of green orange becomes stronger. Combined with Shou pu'er, the fruity aroma of the green orange and the mellow thickness of pu'er will form the sweet taste of citrus-fragrance soup. Our Xiao Qing Gan has been properly stored in a controlled, cool, well-ventilated, dry, odorless, and pollution-free environment.
CHARACTERISTICS: When brewed correctly (please see chart for details), the tea liquor is orange-red and transparent. The taste is mellow and smooth. The whole tea can be soaked first, then boiled. The tangerine can be soaked in twenty to thirty pots and will retain it sweetness.
