Kenyan Purple Tea

from 10.00

Purple Tea is one of the rarest teas in the world --

Purple tea is a somewhat new variation of purple/brownish colored leaves produced by the KTDA on the slopes of Mt. Kenya. They have a subtle berry flavor and have more health benefits than traditional green or white tea.

These tea leaves are grown and hand picked in the highest hectares of the Mt. Kenya Highlands (2036 meters). This is significant because the higher the altitude, the richer and more flavorful the tea becomes (mostly because the tea doesn't grow as fast at higher altitude). The tea pickers carefully extract only the top two leaves and the bud from each purple tea plant. Once the leaves arrive at the Kangaita tea factory they are withered, then either steamed, or fermented, hand rolled and dried.

We generally recommend using a Handy Brew or tea pot with a brew basket to brew our Purple Tea. The water temperature should be between 200 and 205 and the steeping time should generally not exceed 6 minutes.

Thank you for your interest in our Purple Tea - we are sure that you will love it as much as we do!
