Unicorn 2023 Wuliang Shan Ziya Black Tea



Made from Wuliang shan “ziya” purple tea material, growing among EU organic flowers, this varietal differs from the more common “zijuan”. While zijuan/purple beauty is largely the result of human creation, the ziya bushes have developed this unique trait naturally over time.

When made into black tea, this translates to a unique tea that offers a range of engaging notes that include an apple fruitiness, rose-like florals and even a slightly savoury quality. This is a must-try tea for Dianhong lovers.

As with most black teas, the results can be easily affected by brewing temperature, so we recommend experimenting to see what works best for your taste.

    I seem to always detect that fresh vegetal aroma, perhaps characteristic of purple-leaf teas, only this time, it is much more mellow. The tea is relatively light, with apple-like aftertaste and a hint of that typical savoury smell of red tea on the gaiwan lid. Overall, quite a unique experience 🙂

    The tea soup is a deep orange-red with an iodized, almost marine scent initially, before the appearance of notes of ripe fruit, grapefruit peel, violet and cocoa. In the mouth it is umami, sweet and very vibrant. A certainly significant experience for those looking for a black tea from the purple variety
