Kenyan Purple Tea – A Healthy Green Choice

Kenyan Purple Tea – A Healthy Green Choice

Nandi Hills, Kenya – With a colonial background, Kenya’s fertile soil has produced CTC teas for decades.  But a few tea farmers are taking a different angle to compete on the global market.  David is one of these farmers taking a new twist with whole leaf purple and black tea. David started growing purple tea because it’s healthy – anthocyanin rich – meaning it has super high levels of antioxidants.  Antioxidants provide anti-cancer benefits, improved vision, lower cholesterol, increased metabolism, and anti aging properties.  Purple tea responds better to frost, drought and pests – all increasing effects of climate change.  Purple tea is a healthy, green alternative for tea drinkers – lower caffeine content than black tea, comparable in taste to green tea.
