The tea is a beautiful colour - really living up to its name. I just hoped it would have more of a Parma violets taste and this is where it is disappointing. There is a slight smell, but once drinking it I would not be able to say that was the flavour the tea was aiming for. Probably wouldn’t buy again, and rather sad I have a 50g bag to get through! Please could you start doing 20g bags for the seasonal specials too? It means we can try them without having to order a big bag of something we may not personally enjoy! ...Read more


A cup of Halloween!

There's always one kid in the group that loved the parma violet sweets at Halloween, and if you were that kid you will absolutely LOVE this! It doesn't taste like a cup of sugar, but more like the memory of those lovely purple sweets. It's become my go-to relaxation tea after a long workday, always puts me in a fantastic mood!


Purple passion

Love this tea: it has floral notes as well as a refreshing bite. I cold brew it in almond milk, sweetened with just a little honey: the tesultingly gorgeous lilac milk is delicious as a nutritious breakfast drink and makes a delightful chia porridge or overnight oats too!


Like childhood in a cup

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this one when it came in my taster samples, but this is the right side of nostalgic. Not sickly at all. A beautiful purple, especially with milk. love it!
