This is a Zi Juan "Purple Beauty" varietal that was grown in Lancang county in the Jingmai mountainous area. First flush of spring tea leaves were used and processed into a green tea. This is the first ever Purple Beauty Green Tea we have offered.

The taste is unique, something like a Dan Cong meets Yunnan Assamica Green Tea. The tea soup is a grey-purple color and the brewed leaves of this varietal remain dark even after many infusions. There is an umami taste, with sweetness, and slight bitter after-taste. The tea is packed with cha qi and if you are sensitive to it, you'll most likely notice the feeling of this tea.
