Violet Flavoured Black Tea

From £5.00
Product code: 8474

Availability: In stock

The sweetly perfumed, floral infusion will evoke the memory of childhood sweets, Parma Violets! The intensely aromatic oil of violet blossoms have long been used as a flavouring and in perfume with Shakespeare describing the scent as ‘Forward, not permanent; sweet, not lasting. The perfume and suppliance of a minute.' The sweet tasting infusion certainly lingers long enough on the palate to be savoured.

Details

The sweetly perfumed, floral infusion of this tea will evoke the memory of childhood sweets, Parma Violets! The intensely aromatic oil of violet blossoms have long been used as a flavouring and in perfume with Shakespeare describing the scent as ‘Forward, not permanent; sweet, not lasting. The perfume and suppliance of a minute.’ We make this delicious blend, as with all of our flavoured teas, in the shop using the best teas, natural flavourings and fruits and flowers. They make for an interesting adult soft drink, or non-alcoholic cocktail when sweetened or added to fruit juice and can be enjoyed in short measures from a brandy or whisky glass and similarly savoured. Ever since the Chinese first added blossoms and fruit juices to tea centuries ago, people have enjoyed experimenting to find complementary flavours. The marriage of tea to natural fruit oils, flowers and spices, opens up an infinite variety of surprising tastes to the drinker.

If you\'ve tasted violet creme chocolates then this tea will remind you of that sweet, violet scent and the taste has a distinct violet flavour but without being too strong. The dried tea looks nice too with the combination of curled black tea-leaves with vivid purple/blue flower petals mixed through it. (Posted on 20/09/2010)
