    This ball-shaped white tea is wrapped with a piece of white cotton paper. When ripping off the wrapping paper, you will get a sweet familiar orange aroma smelling like the orange flavor candies of childhood. The orange peel ball has been separated into two parts with a circular incision, the upper part is the “lid “and the lower part is the “body “acting as a container which is stuffed with dry white tea leaves. As we known, Tea leaves are highly absorbent and can attract odor from anything they come in contact with. So by putting dried leaves inside the orange peel, we can create a new flavor tea that is slightly sweet in taste and has tasty orange aroma.

    Angel's Comment

    Orange peel white tea is very helpful in relieving cough and reducing sputum in autumn & winter days. If you want to try a healthful tea with fruit flavor and aromas in cold days, this tea will never let you down.
