You know the song “Things that Make You Go ‘Hmmm’ “? This is a tea that makes you go “hmmm.” Its combination of flavors is really unique, in a way that I’m about 90% sure I like.
This tea combines Kenyan purple tea and green Jasmine tea together. I’m not sure what made a person do this. Probably it was a lazy Thursday and the brewer said, “why not?”
Purple tea is known for its antioxidant properties. It’s grown in Kenya; the high UV levels there cause chemical reactions in the tea leaves. It tends toward the green end of the spectrum, in its alleged health benefits, low caffeine, and delicate flavor. The purple tea adds a delicate, sweet flavor to this tea.
Jasmine green tea is a more vegetal and flowery flavor. You probably know Jasmine from going to Chinese restaurants and getting it served to you as the default when you ask for tea.
When combined with the purple, you get a yet-sweeter Jasmine. It’s like Jasmine with vanilla added. It’s really cool, and I’m glad I have some. It’s a smart, refined, sweet blend.
I started with “Hmmm,” and then settled on “Mmmm.”

Purple Mountain Tea from The Whistling Kettle (or “Purple Youth” as its labeled on my sample) is a cup I’ve revisited recently.
The Whistling Kettle describes this tea as…Purple tea combined with a variety of herbs that provide a healthy dose of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Well rounded herbal notes with a floral-spice finish.
As much as I adore my black teas I need to change it up every once and a while. Plus, I have been incorporating more and more anti-inflammatory teas and tisanes into my tea-sipping-rotation as of late.
This Purple Tea seemed to check all the lists.
The product description page on their website breaks down all of the potential benefits to each and every ingredient they added to this loose leaf blend. I find all of that fascinating because I love learning about plant/herb based healthy and healing properties.
Of course, I’m not making any claims here…I’m just sharing with you what I find interesting about this offering and how they relate to what I’m trying to do to improve my intake, personally.
I’ve been on a Nettle Leaf kick the last couple of weeks and the more I learn about it the more I feel like I need to continue to use it or consume daily.
The flavor of this cup is mild, mellow, soothing, slightly herbal but not medicinal, and an easy drink.
If you want to include more herbs into your life but have been turned off by some other herbal offerings…this tea/tisane just might be for you! I know I enjoyed it and will look for it again, soon!
Here’s the scoop!
