Zi Cha literally translates to “Purple Tea” and is one of the rarest type of tea in Yunnan. This is because Yunnan produces less than 3 tons every year. The tea is also known as 3-Color-Tea because they are red when being plucked from the tea bush. When made to tea leaves, they turn purple. Finally after brewing, the tea leaves turn green.
Purple tea has a ton of medicinal properties - low caffeine content, high in antioxidants that provide anti-cancer benefits, improve vision, and lowers cholesterol.
