Wild Purple Tea Buds | 野生紫芽苞

 Tasting notes: Candyfloss, ginger, rose
 Origin: Jinggu, Yunnan, China
 Cultivar: Wild
 Elevation: 950m
 Oxidation: ⦿○○○○

An enigmatic tea harvested in small batches from wild purple-leaf tea trees, these buds have a floral fragrance and a sweet gingery flavour.

Why we love it:

  • It is incredibly fragrant with unique flavour notes of ginger and rose - all naturally inherent in the leaves themselves.
  • It's rare. Because it is from wild, centuries-old tea trees, there is only one small harvest a year. A precious gift from Mother Nature.
  • Nobody knows quite what this tea is. Some think these buds are not the buds of leaves but of off-shoot branches.
  • It is minimally processed: the buds are simply plucked and dried. Their purple hue is completely natural.  

This tea was a big surprise when we first discovered it, and it has since become one of our bestsellers and a true rare gem.
