Dried Tangerine Peel Tea Introduction
Tangerines are a citrus fruit very similar to oranges, but smaller in size and not as perfectly round. They are also much sweeter than oranges and less sour. It is a very tasty fruit, but not everybody knows that a delicious tea is made from its peel. We all know tangerines are a very healthy fruit, but the peel also contains a smorgasbord of different vitamins and important minerals. So you not only get an amazing tea, but many health benefits that go with it.
With its sweet flavor and slightly bitter aftertaste, tangerine peel tea is a must have for any tea lover. The smell is another important component of this tea because the dried peel has such a strong aroma that it spreads throughout the whole room.
Tangerine got its name because it was first brought over to Europe and the United States from Tangier in Morocco. It is native to Asia and came to the west in 19th century. Its genetics still haven’t been thoroughly researched so it is unclear whether tangerines belong to the mandarin family or if they’re just closely related. Depending on the region, tangerines are harvested from winter to early spring.
The tea is made by first washing the fruit and drying it with a towel. Then the outer skin is carefully peeled in equal parts, avoiding starching because that damages it. The peels are finally set out to dry with the inner white part turned to the sun and stored in a dry place. This meticulous process has been improved upon for hundreds of years, until it was perfect. It ensures that the quality of the tea will be extremely high because the peels were produced with such care and love.
When you buy this tea, you get fairly big pieces of the dried peel which you then steep to make the tea. Because the skin is dried naturally and in controlled conditions, all the important nutrients and vitamins are preserved as well as the aroma and taste. The best tea comes from Xinhui, which is a region in China that produces the best quality dried peels.
In China, where this tea originated, tangerine peel is known as chenpi or chimpi. People first started to recognize the importance of it during the Song Dynasty (10.-13th century). Chenpi was not only used to make tea, but it was also a famous seasoning for cooking and an important ingredient of Chinese traditional medicine. That makes it an essential part of Chinese culture that was luckily brought over to the west.
So if you’re a fan of citrus fruit, you will love dried tangerine peel tea and will be mesmerized by its distinctive aroma and flavor. It is a great addition to many meals and can be enjoyed throughout the different seasons. You should definitely add this tea to your tea collection.
