Purple Leaf Tea

(4 customer reviews)


Purple Leaf Tea is a cultivar of the Assamica varietal whose bushes grow purple leaves due to a high level of the antioxidant: Anthocyanins. Purple Tea is low in caffeine. Similar to a green tea, this purple tea is unoxidized to retain the most health benefits. Tumoi Purple Tea tastes of sweet plums and fresh spring greens. Unblended, the natural liquor colour is green-blue. With a drop of lemon, however, the steeped tea turns vibrant purple-pink – an entirely new tea experience.

    As delicious as it is beautiful, the Purple Tea is our family’s new favourite tea. It is slightly more flavourful than green tea, with no bitterness. Bonus: watch what happens when you add lemon to this tea – it’s a pink surprise!

    I tried this tea for the first time, and I must say that it is one of my favourites! It has a soft taste, less bitter when compared to green and black teas, with an appealing fruity aroma.
    I also enjoyed playing with the tea colours by adding a few drops of lemon. A good option for people with children. A wonderful taste with lots of fun!

    This is a smooth brew. I like it with or without lemon, though I do find lemon highlights certain flavour profiles. It is bright, earthy.

    I had never heard of purple tea before I came across this in the Tea Rebellion catalogue, and so far it’s the most interesting and appealing of the real teas I’ve tried here. If you’ve never encountered purple tea, green tea is the closest of the more familiar varieties, but it’s got a fuller, richer taste, somewhere between green and white.
