about Purple Tea

Purple Tea

is derived from Camellia Sinensis, the same plant as black, green and white tea.

This rare tea variety was developed by Kenya Tea Research Institute over a period of 25 years of research and naturally produces purple-reddish tea leaves. A variety that is  grown in higher and cooler elevations of between 4,500 to 7,500 feet which allows the plant to sustain more intense sun rays causing it to produce higher concentrations of anthocyanins and polyphenols than black and green tea. Purple tea also has a lower caffeine level than other teas, which makes it less bitter.

 

"PURPLE TEA
An oriental beauty. Born on the slopes of Mount Kenya, beneath a warm African sun, nurtured by rich juicy yields. Experienced hands of traditional tea farmers select the best buds tenderly.
Purple tea? Not green or black? A fine taste of both crossbreeds, unique on this
planet , only cultivated at this holy place!
Purple Tea, hot water in your cup seduces with its taste, barley can you await the first sips.

A tangency.
Warm, woody notes kiss your tongue, carry on to soft roundness and finally, sweet mellow exhalation. A joy for the palate and- close your eyes-, all of your body senses. A prepossessing Coziness...
Simply more then just a tea, a flirt, stimulative and wonderfully affirming.

A special encounter for special people."
