Purple tea is taking the world by storm! Although technically classed as a green tea, its antioxidant levels are off the chart, with 1.5x more than green or black teas. Enjoy this fruity specialist tea with its overtones of black plum and a mildly woody nose. The liquor exhibits a lovely amber-violet color. A unique tea!
Purple tea is one of the big new players in the world of tea. Our Purple Tea is from the Camellia Sinensis Assamica, var. TRFK 306/1, and is our only true ‘tea’ that we sell. The cultivar is amazing! Its name is from its distinctive purple leaves.
