Today, purple tea is a high quality tea. Their uniqueness, their terroir and their benefits have a lot to do with it. They are usually old trees growing in the middle of a forest. They have atypical smells and aromas, however, their high anthocyanin (polyphenol) level makes them highly sought-after teas for health.

    Tippy Premium Kapkoros Purple

Purple Tea Kenia_edited.jpg

Presentation: Violet tea from Kenya. For a long time we were not tempted to include a purple tea in our assortment, because these teas never convinced us in terms of quality. This quality from the Kapkoros region (Kenya) is completely different! The leaf already shows, with its slightly open, twisted structure and light golden tips, that it is not the usual quality that is ordinarily found in "broken". The slightly purple color of the leaves, which is even more visible in the infusion, is not the result of the production process, but of the use of a very special tea plant, whose anthocyanin content colors the leaves accordingly. .

Tasting: The cup glows with a light purple tone after at least 7 to 8 minutes of infusion. This color will deepen the longer the tea is left to infuse. Which will not be a problem, because this tea does not generate any bitterness. You can therefore leave the leaves to infuse at your leisure and notice the shade of purple with each cup.
The tea has complex and fruity aromas, especially on the finish, because the first sips are rather surprising, not very sweet, rather nuts (almond) and not quite ripe fruit,
  but everything happens in retro olfaction, so arrive slowly  plum and red berries, which round off a slightly tart finish.

3 to 4g of leaves - 30cl of water - T° 80° (Leave to cool to enjoy) Infusion time: minimum 7 to 8 minutes for the shade of purple to appear.
