Brewing instructions
Description

Violet Tea is a Flavoured Loose Leaf Black Tea with a distinct floral character. Every sip evokes memories of strolling through the English countryside on a brisk spring morning.

It is a true delight from start to finish, boasting an extraordinary profile unlike any other infusion. We take pride in packing it fresh to order here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.

What Does Violet Tea Taste Like?

Our delicious Violet Flower Tea is a floral-malty fusion of flavour. It has a delicate yet alluring aftertaste that lingers on the palate long after you’ve drained your cup.

What’s more, due to the presence of Black Tea leaves, it contains a considerable amount of caffeine - approx. 45-mg per 8-oz cup. This should be more than enough to get you out of bed in the morning.

Botanical Features and History

Violets (Viola odorata) is a flower native to Europe and Asia, although it has since spread to North America. It consists of deep-purple, heart-shaped petals - indeed the same petals used in the making of our Violet Tea.

They have long played a significant role in human history. Homer, the ancient Greek author, referenced them in several scriptures - as did the Roman poet, Virgil.

Athenians once used them to moderate anger, procure sleep and “to comfort and strengthen the heart”. Centuries later, Pliny the Elder prescribed a liniment of violet root and vinegar for gout and spleen disorders.

Perhaps most famously, Napoleon had a great adoration for violets, growing up surrounded by them on the French island of Corsica.

Before being exiled to Elba in 1814, he famously said he’d “return with violets”. Instead he was defeated at Waterloo the following year.

During the early 20th century, Edwardians took their Afternoon Tea in cups adorned with intricate violet patterns.

Now, of course, one can enjoy the sweet, floral taste of violets within the cup. Start your journey and buy Violet Tea today.

How to Make Violet Tea

1, Buy a Tea Filter or Infuser and fill it with Loose Tea.

2, Position the Tea-filled accessory in your cup.

3, Begin brewing by pouring in freshly boiled water.

4, Allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes.

How to Serve: Best served without additions.

Violet Tea Benefits

It’s almost hard to believe that Black Tea with violet flowers can have a small yet influence over your physical wellbeing. And yet, it can.

The reason is its abundance of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants, which, combined, combat free radicals in the body. This slows down oxidative stress, ultimately reducing the risk of developing several conditions.
