A Note from the Curator: 

Our 2020 Purple Wildflower White tea is as unique as they come. The material used is commonly known as “Zi Juan” or Purple Bud. These purple pigments are the plants biological response to environmental conditions experienced at tremendously high elevations where UV radiation is powerful, and potentially damaging. The plants produces anthocyanins, with purple, red, and blue variation in pigmentation that shield it from those extreme conditions.

We've read a lot about the higher antioxidant levels in these purple teas compared to normal, but we feel the unique and distinctive herbal notes that accompany purple bud teas are a delicious enough selling point.

Brew it up, and find out for yourself!
