Though most tea plants are green, some produce purple-colored young buds and leaves in the spring. Mostly found on old growth tea trees, the atypical coloration indicates particularly high nutrient levels of anthocyanin flavonoids and amino acids. Purple leaves convey a unique flavor and aroma to teas made with them. This sampler includes a variety of sheng and shu puer teas made from purple leaves. Learn more about purple leaf teas on our tea blog. Includes 10 grams (2 servings) each of every tea. Total 50 grams tea. Each serving of leaves can be re-infused multiple times.
