Kenya purple tea brings the taste of light spring greens and a soft hint of plums to your cup. Often compared to a gentle oolong when fully steeped it pairs fresh with sweet and woodsy flavours.
I love this purple tea for its lightness. It has a hint of astringent similar to an oolong but is fresh and fruity. Adding it to the cupboard!!! – Sonia (customer review, 2018)
This rare tea was discovered in the highlands above the Rift Valley only 25 years ago. Grown from cultivars to maintain purple leafed plants, this non-GMO tea boasts the benefits of higher antioxidants and lower caffeine levels than its black, white and green cousins. All are harvested from the tea plant, Camellia Sinensis.
As a fun addition it changes from a greyish coloured steep to bright pink with a drop of citrus, meanwhile keeping its mellow sweet flavour. At Refresh Tea & Soap Co we offer you loose leaf Kenya Purple Tea, in addition to three blends. These blends are all sourced from a sustainable plantation in Kenya’s Nandi Valley
