Description

This Xinhui chenpi was stored in Jiangmen, Guangdong, where the most renowned tangerine groves for chenpi in all of China are located. Aged Xinhui chenpi goes for top dollar for its medicinal qualities, which supposedly improve with age as different compounds begin to emanate from the peel as it breaks down. 


This is a very high grade aged chenpi that has lovely incense-like aromas and aged tangerine aromas as well. I grew up eating candied tangerine peel, and the good quality chenpi we got down here in Hong Kong tasted much like this.

I tried some of this peel in hot water, and then with pu erh. The peel tastes much like it smells, and it took several long infusions before I was able to elicit bitterness, which was tolerable. There is an agarwood-like character to this peel that is absolutely lovely!

If you've been looking for good quality aged chenpi, this is it! I much prefer using good quality shu pu erh and adding the best chenpi to it. Many of the shu pu erh stuffed tangerines that are commercially produced in Guangdong tend to be very disappointing because of the lower quality tea and chenpi used in their manufacture. With good shou and good chenpi, the experience is just on another level entirely!

Brewing instructions: drink alone, or add to tea after shredding. Do not consume with green leafy vegetables!

Wholesale pricing is available on this chen pi. Please contact me for details!
