Pò purple cha is a tea made from purple leaves harvested in spring 2008 in Jinggu, Yunnan province, South of China. Purple leaves are containing a high amount of anthocyanin, a red-purple-blue pigment found naturally in number of plants, foods - with antioxidant effects. This tea was selected during an important journey of self discovery, deep in the cradle of tea. It has been compressed into a bing cha and aged in Kunming, China.

Transformation : 100% Clean and Vibrant. No pesticides/chemicals. From wild indigenous trees. Produced by a lovely family cultivating tea since many generations.

Tasting experience : Smooth texture, offering a fusion of aromas evoking lichen and fennel, vegetal flavors of nettle with gentle sweet fruity flavors. and camphor finish of coniferous forest.

Elemental Wisdom : Yin Wood tea, transforming into Yin Earth with time.  Wood is associated to transience, change, impermanence. "Pò" is relating to the yin essence, the soul, in unceasing process of growth and transformation, like the tree growing its root system into the rich earth. The energy of this tea is associated to the gentle brightness of wood, mostly referring to the roots settling more and more in truth, as time is passing. The wisdom of this tea is Yin Wood slowly transforming and returning into Yin Earth.
