Did you know that a chameleon’s skin has a superficial layer which contains pigments, and under the layer are cells with guanine crystals making it possible for the animal to change from a variety of colors including purple? Purple Leaf Tea by JusTea is no reptile but add a little lemon juice and watch it change from a translucent purple to a bright grapefruit pink.

As you can see above, the Hue of Purple Leaf Tea varies depending on if you feel like adding a little lemon to your tea or not. The recommended steeping time of 3 minutes yields a translucent purple hue which deepens into more of a pink pigment when lemon is added.
Even though Purple Leaf Tea by JusTea is a light purple air-y hue without lemon juice added it does not have a light and air-y scent. Woody and grassy scents permeate the air when hot water is poured over the leaves. This tea also reminds me of an oolong in scent.
With 2 teaspoons of honey and lemon, Purple Leaf Tea by JusTea remains woody and grassy in taste but the astringency is lessened and becomes more balanced. The tea takes on a refreshing note and probably would taste really good chilled.
