According to a common saying in China's southern Guangdong province, aged dried tangerine peels are as precious as nuggets of gold. The preparation process for tangerine peels typically begins with sun-drying, followed by at least three years of storage. When the peels mature, they can be used to soothe coughs and combat phlegm.

During maturation, the essential oil in the citrus peel begins to dissipate and penetrate its entire surface. As it does so, it releases a mellow perfume, along with an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substance known as flavonoids. The amount of flavonoids in the zests increases the longer they are stored, bringing up their medicinal value. 

This tangerine peel is made from red tangerines grown in Xinhui District, Guangdong Province, where the fruits are thin-skinned and rich in essential oils. As a result, the dried peel produces a more refined aroma. After ten years of storage, the outer skin has a shiny black color and a clear texture. The longer the storage year, the darker the color. This tangerine peel is very elastic and will not rot after being cooked for a long time.

Brew a pot of tangerine peel, and the tea soup will appear golden yellow, fragrant and fragrant, and the entrance will be delicate and smooth.

benefits: Dried tangerine peels have a lot of desirable qualities for practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine. In the Compendium Of Materia Medica, the work of Ming Dynasty herbalist Li Shizhen, the peels are said to “cure a hundred illnesses” and their ability to relieve body heat and dampness. The dried zests have a sharp and bitter taste and can help to nourish the spleen and lungs and clear the throat of phlegm. Simply soaking them in hot water and drinking the liquid is an effective remedy for coughs and phlegm.

The oil in the peel has a mild stimulating effect on the gastrointestinal tract, so it can also boost the appetite as well as neutralizing some of the discomfort. 

Taste method:

The simple way to consume aged tangerine peel is infusing it in boiling water or light-flavored teas like red bean and job's tears tea or toasted rice tea, which also has a mild sour taste.

To ease the discomfort of the throat and nurture the lungs, one can try a recipe of boiling chunks of fresh pear with aged tangerine peel and rock sugar (to taste), a delightful hot beverage with a sweet -and-sour taste. And a recipe to promote digestion is to boil aged tangerine peel and dried hawthorn fruit slices with rock sugar in water.

Chenpi is also found in the traditional sour plum drink, alongside dried dark plum, hawthorn fruit, licorice, osmanthus flower and rock sugar.

The beverage is usually stewed twice to fully extract the flavor and is an especially crowd-favorite to accompany spicy cuisine.
