Introducing this very unique tea, Purple Leaf Tea grown in Kenya.  This is an exciting, brand new category of tea.  The reason it is called Purple Leaf Tea is because purple leaves naturally grow this colour on the tea bush.  This is not a GMO plant, it is a rare and natural genetic mutation in the leaf pigmentation which Kenyan farmers have adopted.  Purple tea contains the same super-antioxidant property that blueberries have (anthocyanin). It is also a colour changing tea – squeeze a couple of drops of lemon into your cup and watch the purple colour intensify!  Magic or science?  You decide.
