A rare botanical specimen, purple tips can be found only in 20 percent of the wild tea trees. The leaves of this Purple Tip cake were plucked from trees over 500 years old.

Taste characteristics:
Made with a bud and two leaves, this tea has a deep malty flavor with a strong lingering aftertaste that is comforting, yet invigorating. Although this is a young cake, it possesses the character and the qi of an older cake.

I have several bing of this tea. I love it and plan to keep it out of my reach for some years so it ages into even more magnificence! Purple tea is not commonplace and is worth finding some to add to your tea collection.
Our responseThat's wise as there is not too much of this cake left.

By Neal Perrin
Another great tea from Banatea. As I was enjoying this tea the thought came to me of the color purple. What should purple smell and taste like this tea sums it up. Simply Marvelous.
Our responseWhat a great description! This tea has been getting better and better since I sourced it when it was new.
