Artisan Collection Ceylon Amethyst Single Estate Tea - 50g Loose Leaf
Ceylon Amethyst is a low grown handpicked purple tea, which is an entirely new classification of tea!
Purple tea is produced from the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, the same from which black, green, and other types of tea are produced. The purple tea when brewed releases a very light purple ring around the insides of the tea cup. This ring only visible when the tea is not hot and gives out a purple silhouette on the surface of the beverage.
Purple leaf tea has a similar fruity and floral flavour profile to Oolong, and is lighter than black tea but does not taste quite as vegetal as green tea. It is overall a well-balanced tea that is both visually mystical and indulgingly gentle to the senses.
