Origin: The heart of the Kenyan highlands on a farm powered entirely by renewable energy during the day with the use of solar power.
Ingredients: Kenyan Purple Tea

Aroma: Deep, rich black tea with a sweet edge. Once steeped develops into a sweet caramel based scent.

Flavour: Gentle note of sweet with a spiced fruit hint, that develops seamlessly into a toasted buttery note, resonating the flavour of honey roasted almonds. Further depth is added with a sudden heavy caramel piquancy that is found in the long lasting finish.

Learning Point: Purple tea contains an antioxidant that acts as a PH indicator, turning orange/pink with acidic solutions and a greenish colour for alkaline.

Final Thoughts: Fun to play around with, but the flavour is a little disappointing, with the exception of drinking it iced, which was delightfully light and refreshing. I would love to hear from someone who tried this and loved it, but it’s not something I would personally come back to. Overall, I think purple tea is something every avid tea lover should at least try, just for the experience.
