Purple Wild Buds


Purple tea buds that infuse into a complex brew that is extremely smooth and interesting.

SKU: N/A Categories: , , Tags: , , ,

Made of “purple beauty” tea tree leaf buds from wild camellia assamica in Dehong Dai Prefecture, Yunnan, China. Hand-picked in the earliest part of Yunnan’s tropical springtime harvest and specially processed into a kind of bud black tea. The wilting process is around 48 hours (longer than other black teas), which has allowed some of the strong tannins to soften, giving a complexity that is totally unique. Tasting notes of eucalyptus, intense fruit, sweet wine, and flowers can be found in this rare and special tea.  Available for a limited time

Brewing Instructions:

Steep 2-4 min at 208°F, may be steeped multiple times
