Wild Forest Purple
Black tea, China

20 grams

Cacao, dried currants, malt ~ stimulating and intense
This decadent, 2020 spring harvest tea comes from tea plants that grow wild in the mountain forests west of Mang Shi, Dehong, southern China, near the Myanmar border, at an altitude of between 1600 – 2200m.

‘Purple’ indicates the presence of the amino acid anthocyanin (found in red/purple fruit and vegetables), which gives the leaves a deep red/purple hue and a sweet, red berry flavour.

Preparation: Steep at around 100° for a brisk, complex and stimulating tea. Lower the temperature to around 90° (cool boiled water for 2 mins) for a more mellow, smooth and chocolatey infusion. Three infusions
