Zi Ya (Purple bud) - purple tea is made from tea leaves mutated, adapting to the local microclimate. This variety mostly found high in the mountain. This is a mutation that occurs when exposed to the sun. The plant requires blue and violet light spectrum for harmonious growth. In areas with too much sunlight, plants lack blue-violet light and as a result, due to a complex biochemistry inside the tea leaf, it changes its colour into purple. In addition, this tea has a unique, delicate, sweet, floral flavour.
