What’s The First Tea Innovation in Thousands of Years? – Purple tea

Upon visual inspection, the dry leaves look like a twisted oolong to me. Brewing it up, it looks a touch darker than most of my green teas but not as dark as oolongs and blacks. If you want to see a bit of magic, add a few drops of lemon and watch the color transformation. I have to admit that I enjoy the taste. It’s without the vegetal notes of traditional green teas, but the flavor is sufficiently strong to provide an enjoyable experience.

“I find that the music expresses a lot of different things, not just anger. It’s extreme. There’s no gray area. Whatever emotion you choose to express in the music, it’s gonna be intense.”
