A close relative of the same age-old tea trees that speckle the forests of Yunnan with their bright, reddish-purple hues, this newly developed cultivar has now taken root on the fertile slopes of Mount Kenya, benefiting tea farmers with both higher revenues and a fully pesticide-free cultivation. The leaves' striking color is a result of their high amounts of anthocyanins, the same pigments also responsible for their resistance to local pests. And you'll be happy to know these protective properties also translate to the tea's rich and fruity infusion. Boasting almost twice as many antioxidants as any other tea variety, our Rich Purple has earned the title of "healthiest tea on earth."
