Tangerine Puerh Ball
This tea is composed of fermented tea leaves aged inside a tangerine rind, which imparts a light citrusy sweetness to the brewed tea. It is produced in Xin Hui, Guangdong Province and it is known for the health benefits of Sheng Jin (making your mouth feel quenched), Run Fei Zhi Ke (suppressing coughs and nurturing lung performance), and Qu Re (reducing internal heat). Add a few pieces of the rind to your teapot to really get that tangerine flavor.
Instructions:
Basic preparation;
Before brewing, hot rinse this tea by pouring boiling water over the leaves and discarding the water. Use 2 teaspoons of tea (about a quarter sized piece) per 8-12 oz of water. Steep for 2 minutes with boiling water.

If you are interested in a lighter brew try using 1 teaspoon of tea.

If you are interested in a stronger brew try steeping for 3+ minutes.

This tea re-steeps excellently a second and third time. To reuse the same leaves, brew successive infusions, not letting the tea sit out for more than an hour. Infuse the tea in the same way as the first steeping, but increase the steep time by one minute for each infusion.
