Purple shiso, grown on our Dorset farm and carefully dried to create a deliciously different, delicately flavoured tea.
Purple shiso pours from the pot as light blue and turns purple over time. Shiso is a member of the mint family and although it bears some resemblance in flavour there is a savoury herb like quality that is likened to basil or caraway with a hint of citrus.
Iced shiso is refreshing and the addition of lemon juice will lighten the colour of the purple variety from dark purple to bright pink. Shiso leaves and stems are widely used to treat stomach pain and nausea and the tea can have a calming effect on these symptoms.
