From Murchie's Tea & Coffee

Purple Majesty is a unique purple tea from the Nandi Hills in Kenya, which is home to some of the highest elevation tea gardens in Africa (6700 feet above sea level).

Purple tea comes from a cultivar of Camellia sinensis which produces purple leaves during the rainy season. Two leaves and a bud are hand-plucked and then processed similar to a pan-fired Taiwanese green tea – this tea is heated immediately to prevent oxidation, so it retains a very fresh aroma and flavour. The taste is similar to a green tea or a light oolong.

Brew like a green tea.

A good, subtle tea. I like tasting this one through gongfu to get a hint of its more subtle side as well as its stronger, more astringent side, both of which are very unique and a little earthy tasting with a pleasantly mild floral aftertaste. Definitely would make a good base tea, and tastes best once it’s cooled down a little and not piping hot.

I really wanted to love this uniquely coloured tea. I can’t taste a difference between this and regular greens, but this is one of the more flavourful greens. There is bitterness which I find very off putting (although probably not an issue for most people). Some fruity and thick/creamy notes that would had been wonderful if the bitterness were replaced with sweetness. Typical green vegetal flavours.
