Description

Violet Tea is a Flavoured Black Tea with a distinct floral character. Every sip evokes images of strolling through the English countryside on a brisk spring morning. It is a heavenly delight from start to finish, boasting an extraordinary profile unlike any other infusion. Be sure to buy Violet Flower Tea here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, where every Loose Tea is packed fresh to order.

The Curious Story Behind Violet Leaf Tea

Violet (Viola odorata) is a flower native to Europe and Asia. Having since spread to North America, it consists of deep-purple heart-shaped petals that we use for making Flavoured Black Tea. The ancient Greek author Homer and the Roman poet Virgil referenced violets in their respective works. Athenians once considered them effective in moderating anger, procuring sleep and strengthening 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 said he would “return with violets”. Instead, he was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo the following year.

Does Violet Tea Have Caffeine

Drinking Black Tea with Violet is an excellent choice if you need help getting out of bed in the morning. This is because of its abundance of caffeine, a stimulating chemical compound that provides an energy boost upon consumption. Though the flowers are 100% void of the constituent, Black Tea leaves have about 45-mg per serving. That’s more than enough to start your day the right way.
