Certificate Analyze by Eurofins

    The special trait about this tea is that its ball-shaped piece is wrapped in cotton paper. After the removal of the wrapping paper you will feel the pleasant orange fragrance reminding you the candies from childhood. The ball of the orange peel is spread in two parts with a circular incision, making the upper part the ‘lid’ and the lover one – the ‘body’. This makes it look like a container for dried white tea leaves. The interesting fact is that the tea leaves have high absorbent characteristics and attract odour from anything they may come in contact. Thus, if you put dried leaves inside the orange peel, you can make the perfect orange tea flavour with slightly sweet and tasty hints.
