Ever since the fifties, several farmers reported to have seen tea trees with purple tea leaves. In the year 1985, scientists confirmed the existence of these trees in the wild forests of Yunnan. They named this varietal 'Zi Juan' (紫鹃), which literally means 'Purple Beauty'.

Zi Juan tea contains 30-100 more Anthocyanin, which is a healthy polyphenol, compared to other tea varietals.
