You may have tried green matcha before, but have you tried purple matcha? Williamson Tea have a fabulous one that they sell, and they are one of my favourite brands of tea, particularly because they support a great cause I do, which is the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, in Nairobi, Kenya.
What I also love about Williamson Tea, is the ‘Bush to cup transparency,’ where you have the confidence that their teas are grown, picked and packed with total transparency.
Purple tea bushes are a variety of the normal green tea bush and is grown on Williamson Tea’s Changoi farm, high in the Kericho highlands of Kenya.
Purple tea has a smoother and subtler taste with hints of caramel. It actually tastes nicer than the green variety, has a lovely ‘nutty’ tone to it, and is perfect on its own, whisked in the Far-Eastern traditional way, or as an ingredient in smoothies, juices, desserts and frothed up in milk as a latte.
Matcha has a high antioxidant content, and is known for its ability to allow focus as well as has many health benefits.
I was sent some Purple matcha to try along with a beautiful whisk to prepare it and comparing it to green matcha, I absolutely loved it. I chose to have it in the traditional way and it was a lot nicer to drink than other matcha teas I have tried, which can have quite a bitter taste.
The caddy itself is super cute and a lovely addition to my elephant caddy collection.
If you are a matcha tea lover, this is one to try and also makes a perfect gift for any matcha tea lover!
