Typical herbal Chamomile notes with bitter touch of purple varietal which are well preserved in taste and aroma.

Zi Juan - literally Purple Beauty , is a reputedly scarce purple-leaf Yunnan (云南) Da Ye (大叶) cultivar, high in Anthocyanin , which is a class of flavonoids, occurring in many plants, and lending a red or purple pigmentation to, among other things, autumn leaves; especially high in some tea cultivars and perhaps lending heightened florality to tea liquor made from those cultivars.
