Purple tea is a new variety which is grown in high altitudes organically in Kenya. It has all of the health benefits of green tea with less caffeine. It naturally grows purple because it's protecting its self from uv rays of the sun. The plant contains anthocyanin, the same antioxidant found in other purple plants like blueberries.
Kenya is the only country that grows beautiful, organic, purple tea gardens. Certified: Organic, Non GMO, Rainforest Alliance Certified and a member of the Fair Trade Alliance.
Purple Leaf Tea is also a colour changing tea… squeeze a couple drops of lemon into your tea cup and watch the purple colour intensify. Be the first to try this beautiful new tea!
