From Whistling Kettle

Purple tea, like all other tea originates from the Camellia Sinensis plant. However, a genetic mutation has managed to produce a tea with higher levels of anthocyanin – which gives this tea its unusual purple appearance. It is the same antioxidant that gives blueberries, raspberries and other red/purple foods their color. Purple tea contains 1.5 percent anthocyanins compared to .1 percent for blueberries.

So glad to have tried this unusual tea. Love that. It has a beautiful almost-floral scent like jasmine. Should be brewed at white tea temperature (170-180)

I did not know this and boiled it, and it’s a bitter cup. But I won’t hold user error against the tea. Properly prepared, I can tell this is going to be delicious.
