Purple Leaf Tea Tin
Purple Leaf Tea: Make room Green, Black and Oolong, because Purple Tea is here! 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 (see picture on left)! This is not a gmo plant, it is completely natural and part of the tea family (Camellia Sinensis Assamica). The reason the leaves are purple is because they contain the super antioxidants: Anthocyanins. These are the same antioxidants that make other plants purple: like our favourite grapes, blueberries, pomegranates, and acai berries. Learn more here.
Purple Leaf Tea is also a colour changing tea… squeeze a couple drops of lemon into your tea cup and watch the purple colour intensify. Be the first to try this beautiful new tea!
