Compared to standard violet, our violet is sweeter and more delicate, due to altitude and purer growing conditions.This truly is a unique infusion as our violet changes colour in the cup (unaided), from a deep purple to almost transparent, with a hint of purple when done. Sit back and enjoy – infusions need not only be about taste and health benefits. Violet tisane may be drunk hot, and may be used in mocktails, cocktails and recipes.
Please note the pouches are not airtight, and therefore once opened, your tisane should be transferred to an airtight caddy or storage jar in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and strong odours. We do not recommend glass, plastic and paper containers.

Violets have had many different and interesting uses throughout time. Courtesans of ancient Greece used to use violets to scent themselves, and at one point the humble violet became the symbol of the city of Athens. In addition, it was said that Napoleon loved violets above all other flowers. Hence, during Napoleon’s exile, his supporters wore violets to identify themselves to each other. As violets became the emblem of imperialism in France, French law prohibited public displays of art depicting violets for more than half a century.
Because violet imparts its sweet odour and vibrant colour to liquids, alcohol or vinegar extractions, they were once used to flavour and colour foods and beverages. Medicinally, herbalists would traditionally use violet to treat coughs, bronchitis and to purify the blood, as well as improving immunity during the sickness. Packed with vitamins A & C, this is no shrinking violet!
