Product Introduction:
Dried tangerine peel (or chenpi) is exactly what it sounds like—the peel of a tangerine that's dried and aged. The ingredient has been featured in chinese cooking for hundreds of years and is used in savory and sweet dishes as well as teas. Xinhui, in China’s Guangdong Province, is famous for making dried mandarin orange peels.
What Is Dried Tangerine Peel?

Dried tangerine peel is often made using green, unripe tangerines or mandarin oranges. The ingredient is made by peeling citrus fruit and drying the peels in the sun before storing them away to age anywhere from several months to 70 years. The longer the peel is aged, the more it is prized for its depth of flavor. This means that high-quality, long-aged dried tangerine peel can be pricey, selling for up to $5 per gram.

Dried Tangerine Peel Uses
With its aromatic bitter and sweet flavor, dried tangerine peel is added to sweet and savory Chinese dishes. It's also frequently added to herbal and whole leaf teas.
