Zi Ya Tea - Wild Purple Bud Raw Tea Cake 100g

A purple bud tea (zi ya) which is naturally grown at an altitude 1800m. This tea is harvested from a different version of Assamica tea tree.

Availability: In stock




The buds and small leaves are purple in colour due to the high anthocyanin content. They are a type of flavonoids with antioxidant benefits.

Purple Bud Tea Taste

The taste of this Zi Ya raw tea is somewhat bitter when young, but ages quickly. It gradually develops wonderfully rich honey notes with light flower aroma. The tea liquor has a bright yellow colour and is smooth when it enters the mouth. The excellent ‘cha qi’ (tea energy) elevates the mind, while the ‘huigan’ (after taste) is keeps lingering in the mouth.

Because many aren’t familiar with Zi Ya tea, we’ve decided to offer this small and accessible 100g cake. This allows you to try a refined purple bud tea at a still very affordable price. The size makes it also a perfect choice as a gift or to conveniently carry along your journeys.
