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.

And now I’ve got to explain the smell that was in there before I went in there. Does that ever happen to you? It’s not your fault. You’ve held your breath, you just wanna get out, and now you open the door and you have to explain, ‘Oh! Listen, there’s an odor in there and I didn’t do it. It’s bad.
