This purple tea was quite interesting...it did taste substantially different from most black tea, even though at a glance it just looked like a typical broken-leaf black tea.

Flavor is initially smooth, but it has some bite to it after the initial sip, leaving an almost peppery finish. Unlike the Royal Tajiri Tea which had a high-grown, Darjeeling-like character, this tea was more average in character. But the aroma had some qualities unlike any other kind of tea I've tried...and I find it difficult to describe. Certain aspects of it resembled Chinese pan-fired green teas, but only slightly.

I wasn't wowed by this one as much as I was by the other offerings from Royal Tea of Kenya. But I thought this tea was solidly good.
