A sip of this rich, fresh, and smooth whole leaf black tea transports you to the lush, jade tea gardens at the foot of Mt Kenya. Grown on small Kenyan farms where no pesticides are ever sprayed on the tea leaves, Mt. Kenya Black Tea carries strong and malty tasting notes hinting of cocoa beans and dried fruit and is highly caffeinated. Sweet and complex on its own but equally superb with a splash of milk and sugar, Mt. Kenya Black is also delicious as an iced tea!

JusTea is dedicated to maintaining the whole tea leaf rather than the normal maceration which destroys much of the leaf’s natural complexities and depth. This allows the tea to be steeped multiple times, retaining the full flavor profile that whole leaf tea offers.

Each 90g tin includes a hand-carved wooden spoon and makes about 40 cups or when re-steeping, 80 cups. Steeping Instructions: 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of 205°F water for 3 mins.

Did you know that all tea comes from the jade green leaves of the tea tree - except for a new purple tea? This unique cultivar yields beautiful, vibrant purple leaves! Grown organically on small Kenyan farms, JusTea® purple tea leaves are naturally purple because they contain anthocyanins, the same super antioxidants found in other purple plants like blueberries and pomegranates. A cup of low-caffeine Purple Jasmine is fresh and delicate, with light, floral notes of spring jasmine and honey. The enchanting fragrance of real jasmine blossoms creates the perfect pairing of tea and flowers with an added bonus: if you add a few drops of lemon to the steeped tea, the super-antioxidants will react to enhance a beautiful purple/pink colour change!

JusTea is dedicated to maintaining the whole tea leaf rather than the normal maceration which destroys much of the leaf’s natural complexities and depth. This allows the tea to be steeped multiple times, retaining the full flavor profile that whole leaf tea offers.

Each 90g tin includes a hand-carved wooden spoon and makes about 40 cups or when re-steeping, 80 cups. Steeping Instructions: 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of 175°F water for 2 mins.

JusTea® Trios bring together three delicious flavors of Kenyan tea in one gorgeous gift set! The Purple Tea Trio contains three interlocking tins filled with JusTea's award-winning Purple Jasmine, Purple Rain and Purple Chocolate loose-leaf teas.

Each trio tin includes a hand-carved wild olive wood spoon, information about the small-scale tea production in Kenya, and steeping instructions for each flavor. Unit Size: Each trio contains about 45 cups of loose leaf tea (15 cups per flavor). Avg. 90g

Steeping Instructions: 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of 205°F water for 3 mins.

JusTea is dedicated to maintaining the whole tea leaf rather than the normal maceration which destroys much of the leaf’s natural complexities and depth. This allows the tea to be steeped multiple times, retaining the full flavor profile that whole leaf tea offers.
