No.32 Kenya Purple Loose Leaf Tea

  • Kenya Purple Tea has a uniquely sweet and slightly fruity flavour, making it a delicious addition to your tea collection.
  • Using selective breeding and a number of years of tinkering, the tea growers of Kenya have produced Purple tea from a cultivar of Camellia Sinensis, (that's the same plant all tea comes from).
  • The leaves of the purple tea plants are full of some very powerful antioxidants that are said to provide a range of health benefits.
  • Kenya purple tea isn't a strong tea, it's full of flavour and should be enjoyed without milk.  Use a teaspoon per serving and steep for 3 minutes. If you add a slice of lemon to the cup, the tea will change colour to a pale purple!
