What is Purple Tea
Purple tea is a tea plant variety that was recently obtained through an exclusive selection from the Camellia Sinensis tea plant, from which other classic teas are obtained (black, white, and green tea).
In other words, the Purple Tea plant is a cultivar of the plant from which traditional black tea is obtained. Except that Purple Tea only grows and matures in Kenya, and has specially adapted to the high-altitude and warm environment of Kenyan tea fields.
The tea leaves from which purple tea is steeped get purple-colored upon their maturity under the impact of Kenyan pure rains, cold temperature, and intense sun characteristic for high altitudes.
They are afterward hand-picked, dried, carefully packed, and shipped to other countries, where millions of customers can enjoy the benefits and an exclusive taste of this organic and pure tea.
How is Purple Tea Different
Purple tea leaves have a characteristic color with red and purple tones. This color is only specific for the Camellia Sinensis varietal that grows in Kenya, where it has all the needed climate conditions to grow.
Despite the exotic color of the tea leaves, the purple tea infusion doesn't have a dark purple color when brewed. It has a golden orange-brown tone that becomes a little pink when lemon is added.
The fact that it changes its color makes drinking purple tea not only an experience of taste but also a visual experience that can delight the eye as well.
But there's more than this. As in the case of other vegetables and fruits that have a dark purple color (like eggplants, blueberries, purple grape, etc.), purple tea has a significant load of antioxidants. The anthocyanins, polyphenols, catechins, and epigallocatechin galette are powerful ingredients that contribute to the miraculous properties of purple leaf tea.
The Special Benefits of Purple Tea
Due to its high level of antioxidants, Purple Tea is considered a super-food that has superior benefits over the black and green tea.
It is scientifically proven that the anthocyanins combat free radicals in your body. Antioxidants help to soothe inflammation, increase the resistance of your body in front of viruses and different types of bacteria.
By adding purple tea to your diet, you help your body stay fit and healthy, and you also help it stay hydrated. Transforming tea-drinking into a habit will significantly reduce the probability of getting chronic diseases over time.
Drink purple tea regularly, and enjoy at least the following health benefits:
- A fit brain
