I am so fond of Purple Zi Juan teas. I find them so intriguing and different.
Beautiful. I mean literally beautiful. I love how sleek this tea looks like. Long dark blueish grey strands with some brown shades in the mix.
The leaves are equally stunning once steeped.
Using 5g in little glass gongfu pot.
This tea has such an attractive taste, full of warmth.
First few steeps produces a rather light brew. It intensifies around steep three, where it reaches a nice medium body.
Hard to describe the taste.
It’s creamy and tart at the same time. Very lightly astringent.
A mellow white grape taste brings a nice fruitiness to it. It’s a bit woodsy, but not smokey at all.
It’s what I call a cleansing tea, you just get a sense of wellness out of it.
It’s late in the night, a nice cha qi feeling going on. All warm and peaceful inside.
This is another high quality tea from Tao Tea Leaf.
I’ve been so impressed by their standards so far.
