From CHA YI Teahouse

Yunnan’s Dehong region is home to some particularly unusual tea trees: purple-leaved tea plants. It is a harvest from these trees that forms the basis of this tea, giving it notes of myrtle, cane sugar, and rice syrup with a surprising twist of blueberry and blackcurrant. Soft and refreshing.

I practically lost my mind over this tea session! This tea is mouthwatering with notes of sweet breads, amber honey, leather, & dark cacao complimenting a complex range of fruit notes that encompass tropical sweet guava jam, black currant, and candied plums – with a floral and spicy lilac undertone. The liquor is syrupy and smooth with a coating and lingering finish of perfumed sweet ‘purple’ fruit juices. There’s so much to unpack here with each steep; I am so enamored and impressed! One of the best sessions I’ve had this week, easily!!


Song Pairing:


Sounds like a wonderful way to start the week!



btw, I got tickets for Primavera Sound next year! If (the festival happens and) they won’t clash with something I might be able to see The Strokes live there :)
