Taste and colour

Some books will tell you the leaves taste lemony but to me they taste more like a sharpish apple skin (Granny Smith maybe). Very nice though.

Also, the first time I really got to know this plant, about a year ago, the examples I found had a deep purple underside to the leaves but this year I've only seen completely green examples... does anyone have any thoughts on that?
