From Bitterleaf Teas

Made from Wuliang shan “ziya” purple tea material, growing among EU organic flowers, this varietal differs from the more common “zijuan”. While zijuan/purple beauty is largely the result of human creation, the ziya bushes have developed this unique trait naturally over time.

When made into black tea, this translates to a unique tea that offers a range of engaging notes that include an apple fruitiness, rose-like florals and even a slightly savoury quality. This is a must-try tea for Dianhong lovers.

As with most black teas, the results can be easily affected by brewing temperature, so we recommend experimenting to see what works best for your taste.

This was a morning session paired with a couple juicy summer peaches!! This black tea was made with Zijuan material, which is also known as purple tea. Not the Kenyan purple tea that’s more commonly known Western-facing, though. I’m always intrigued to try different Zijuan productions, and I feel this one made a good first impression. Most of the richly bodied infusions were pretty consistent in taste with “denser” low notes of orchard and stone fruits, which was ironic given my pairing. I also tasted honey and dark grains, with subtle notes of chocolate and leather. Definitely not a lot of “brightness” to each sip, but so much complexity!!
