Well whatever next. To be honest I’ve blended this tea and I’m quite pleased with it. It does small and taste predominantly of Green Mandarin but there are definite hints of both plums and lychees. The Citrus nobilis (or possibly Citrus x clementina or Citrus reticulata) ‘Mandarin’ tree is cultivated for its sweet and juicy fruits and often sold as ‘Clementine’ these are typically orange. The Green Mandarin are unripe fruits harvested before the peel ripens, this skin is less sour than most citrus. I hope you enjoy this blend of Chinese Orange Pekoe leaves and we shall see if it becomes a sweet success.
