The Ragati Estate's premium output of Purple Tea is grown in February, when the Kenyan highlands benefit from evenly-distributed rainfall and moderate temperatures that force tea bushes to flush, or push out new shoots consistently each morning. This combination of altitude, weather and ancient soils produces a floral terroir that is truly unique. This same magical combination of factors also produces tea leaves with high levels of antioxidants.
Unlike other black teas, Ragati Purple Tea is best consumed without milk. Rather, we suggest a squeeze of lemon. When lemon is added to your cup, you'll notice the liquor takes on a pink hue - an indicator of excellent quality and perfectly balanced tannins.
