Kenyan Purple Leaf Tea

from 20.00

Purple tea is an entirely new category of tea! Just like black or green tea, it is from the Camellia Sinensis plant, but the leaves of these tea bushes are purple instead of green. It was first discovered growing wild in the Assam region of India, and is now grown commercially in Kenya, Africa. Ours is from the Tumoi Tea Garden in the Nandi Hills of Kenya.

This purple leaf tea has a similar flavor profile to oolong (lighter than black tea, and not quite as vegetal tasting as green tea). It’s also very high in anthocyanins – the beneficial compounds found in blueberries, eggplant, purple grapes and other blue, purple or dark red foods.

Low in caffeine (less than green tea, slightly more than white tea).
