A lovely blend of whole leaf high grade Purple Tea and Jasmine Green Tea. This tea has all the beneficial antioxidants of both Purple and Green teas.
Purple Tea is a new cultivar of the tea family (botanical name Camellia Sinensis Assamica) that is grown at extremely high elevations in Kenya. It has beautiful purple leaves and brews a lovely purple hue that intensifies if you add a squeeze of lemon. Why is it purple? The leaves are purple because they contain anthocyanin, the same antioxidant found in blueberries, pomegranates and acai berries. The leaves are slightly withered to create a subtle and natural taste while retaining all of the health benefits.
Brewing instructions are similar to a green tea. We recommend 170 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes. One teaspoon of tea for up to 8 ounces of water.
