ingredients & lore
blended with white tea, orange peels and natural mandarin flavor
Tangerine is the common name for a variety of Mandarin orange. The name tangerine comes from Tangier, Morocco, the port from which the first tangerines were shipped to Europe in 1841. Throughout history, tangerines have been bred with many other fruits. The most interesting hybrids include tangelos (tangerine and grapefruit), tangors (tangerine and orange) and tangtangelos (tangerine and tangelo). Another popular descendant of the tangerine is the Clementine, a seedless, sweeter version of the fruit, easy to peel and a 'darling' gift during the holidays.
