Mother Nature’s Secret has finally been exposed! The Purple Tea leaf grows in highly rich soils of Kenya’s Volcano basins. Purple tea develops at heights of 4,500 and 7,500 feet.
This high elevation expands the UV assault on the plant and increment the cell reinforcements to shield the leaves from these abnormal amounts of UV.
Tea being the #1 export in Kenya, this country has mastered the process of harvesting Green and Black Teas. Loaded with antioxidants, anthocyanins and many, many other health benefits, farmers and scientists got together and decided to create a hybrid of the teas. A “super-tea,” generated from the crossover of the Green and Black Tea Plants.
They were pleasantly surprised.
After years of testing and research they discovered Purple Tea was, in fact, a SUPER TEA. A tea that can be ingested but even more so, processed down and mixed into creams and lotions. Purple Tea contains the highest levels of anthocyanins discovered yet at 1.5% compared to blueberries that have .1%.
Anthocyanins are antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation. Oxidation is the chemical reaction that can produce free radicals that lead to chain reactions. These chain reactions may damage cells of organisms. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions.
