Vesta is a purple buds (Zi Ya) varietal (cultivar) of black tea from Yunnan, the birth place of tea, in the South of China.

This region is known for its precious rich biodiversity. The buds and leaves of this varietal of tea tree are of distinctive purple/burgundy color, caused by the presence of the powerful antioxidant Anthocyanin in the plant, which is responsible for giving the purple/blue color to certain types of fruit, like cherry, blackberry, blueberry, juniper berry, plum or red grapes. This purple pigment antioxidant is offering a myriad of health benefits; such as antibacterial activity, vasodilatory, anti-inflammatory, antiallergic and antiviral.

Because the purple bud varietal is rare, any tea that are made from these leaves, like black tea and certain Pu’er, are incredible precious for tea lovers. Essentially, the special bud of this black tea, from a different version of assamica tea tree, can also be used to make pu’er tea. 

Earth Karma : 100% Organic. Clean and Free from pesticides. Soulful farming, from tea plantations of Yunnan, China. 

Tasting Experience : Offering a highly complex, nourishing liquor with distinctive flavors of honey, cooked fruits, refreshing eucalyptus and lavender notes. Aromas of grapes, peaches and touches of mountain laurel. The harmony between sweet fruits, fine acidity, refreshing herbs and great structure is truly divine.

Medicine : Fire element tea. Vesta is the goddess of the sacred Fire of the heart. Entry to her temple was permitted only to her priestesses, the Vestals, who tended the sacred fire at the heart of her temple. Vesta Purple Black Tea’s medicine is heart opening and comforting, inviting you back home to yourself, connecting you to your feminine creative force.
