Kenya Purple Tea

Kenya purple tea like all black, green and white teas originates from the Camellis Sinensis plant. The purple appearance of the tea is caused by a unique genetic mutation which produces anthocyanin, the same powerful anti-oxidant found in blueberries. Orginally wild mutations were found in small quantities in China. However Purple tea Kenya is now grown commercially. Kenya purple tea is grown at elevations between 4500 and 7500 ft, much of it from the Nandi Hills region of Kenya. This high altitude near the equator results in higher levels of UV bombardment, and causes the plants to produce very high levels of anti-oxidants to protect the leaves from damage. Because of the high altitude, no pesticides are used on purple tea kenya.
