Purple Jasmine is a tea of subtle nuances. It has a subtle airy jasmine note, lighter than a regular Jasmine green tea. It’s fresh and delicate but leaves a full mouthfeel of sweet and long aftertaste. No bitterness, only light astringency.
Deep, intense, delicately smoky with a damp wood bottom note reminiscent of sheng pu’erh and fragrant and airy jasmine.

Purple Jasmine tea is a blend of teas specific to two countries–Kenya and China, both important tea producers. Jasmine loose tea is produced in many countries, but it was first invented in China. Today, China is still producing some of the most exquisite Jasmine teas, scented with fresh jasmine flowers. Kenyan purple tea was developed by a Kenyan Tea Research Foundation to bring diversity into Kenyan tea production, still mostly focused on black tea.
Unlike other real teas–white teas, yellow teas, green teas, oolong teas, black or dark teas–purple tea is not a category of tea. Purple tea is a type of tea plant that can be used for making different types of tea–green, oolong, black, etc. What makes this tea plant special is the high level of anthocyanin–a purple pigment. Anthocyanin is an antioxidant and may provide numerous health benefits.
Purple tea is a new type of tea from Kenya, created with benefits in mind. It’s made from unique new tea plants, with high levels of anthocyanin - the same antioxidant found in blueberries, red cabbage or black currants. In fact, purple tea may have 15 times more anthocyanin than blueberries. This tea is grown at high altitudes, between 4500 and 7500 feet, on only a few tea plantations.
Jasmine tea may provide some additional benefits compared to pure green tea leaves. Jasmine tea is scented with jasmine flowers, leaving an intense and calming scent. Purple tea naturally contains higher levels of antioxidants – both EGCG and anthocyanin.
Jasmine green tea contains antioxidants, caffeine, L-theanine, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and other compounds. Jasmine tea may provide antioxidant, energy boosting, gastroprotective, anti inflammatory and antipyretic effects, and may help with weight loss goals, lower cholesterol, reduce stress and even act as a potential aphrodisiac.
