Purple Kenyan

Purple Tea

Purple tea is only grown in one place in the world and that’s Kenya!

Description

Purple tea is grown over 6,000 feet above sea level. With such an elevation comes a high level of antioxidants. Antioxidants help fight cancer. Purple tea is believed to help lower blood pressure, help fight against viruses with its anti-inflammatory properties, and help prevent diabetes. This tea has many more health benefits with a great history and future. Please read my BLOG to learn much more about this amazing tea!
