This is a rare tea variety grown in the Mt Kenya region derived from a new crossbred variety of common tea leaf (Camelia Sinensis) from which black , white and green teas are derived.
This new variety of classic tea plant was only recently developed and is exclusive to Kenya. Purple tea is grown in cooler conditions of Africa at an elevation of between 4500 and 7500 feet. This allows the plants to sustain more intense sun rays causing it to produce high levels of protective anthocyanins and higher levels of polyphenols (16,5%) than other teas, which average 10% and help protect the leaves from damage.
