About This Tea

Usually we make black tea with this unique cultivar but we thought its complexity and strength would yield an amazing jasmine green. This batch was made with early spring, tender plucks and processed according to the baked green style. We selected the jasmine flowers at their peak of scent to obtain their purest expression. Jasmine Purple Buds is made from the rare purple leaf tea cultivar called Zi Juan, or "Purple Beauty." Zi Juan produces beautiful reddish-purple leaves that are high in anthocyanins, a family of red and blue antioxidants found in fruits like blueberries, blackcurrants, grapes and butterfly pea flowers. Jasmine Purple Buds is grown at an organic and biodiverse tea garden in a lush mountainous region of Yunnan’s Lincang Wa Shan territory bordering Burma. Wa Shan is a tea mountain famed since ancient times and named after the Wa ethnic minority group who has farmed tea there for more than a thousand years. This experimental jasmine green tea is vibrant and fresh. We find a heady hot aroma and when the cup cools down the richness and depth of the tea balances well with the high fragrance. This tea is one of the best jasmine teas for cold brewing.
