Purple Bamboo Shoot

$ 12.00

Known as Gu Zhu Zi Sun in China, this Purple Bamboo Shoot got its name because there is purple in the un-plucked leaf and when the processed leaf is shaped it resembles the narrow vertical shape of a bamboo shoot.

Purple Bamboo Shoots has a long and glorious history. It has been a tribute tea from Zhejiang Province for a 1000 years. And even more importantly it was a favorite tea of the first and most famous tea master Lu Yu. Purple Bamboo Shoots has a fresh, clean taste with a lingering sweet aftertaste.

Harvested in early April of 2015 by a master tea maker, made entirely by hand. 

No pesticides were used on this tea.
