Ultra Violet (紫外紅茶, Zǐ Wài Hóng Chá, "Ultraviolet Red Tea") - This tea is made from the leaves of the Zǐ Juān 紫娟 (“Purple Grace”) varietal of the Pu'er tea plant. Prized for its exquisite color, medicinal qualities, and powerful, euphoric Qi, this tea takes on a warm and sensual dimension when oxidized in the style of Sun-Dried Red. This tea has a musky aroma with notes of fresh red grape skin and a sweet and refreshing flavor reminiscent of dark berries and plum.

So this is one of the best black/red teas I've ever had! It's fruity, floral, and sweet. I normally can't stand black tea regardless of the grade, but this sun dried purple takes away everything that I hated about other red teas and only leaves the good qualities. It lasts for so long, too. I can sit down and brew this tea for a few hours on end before it stops giving me flavor.
