Purple Tea is Taking Over

There is talk about Purple Tea replacing Green Tea as the new health drink. Purple tea originated in India and is only available in Kenya, currently in the process of returning to India. If you have not hear about purple tea find everything you need to know about it below.
What is so special about purple tea? Apart from its delightful colour, this type of tea has great health benefits and gives green tea a real run for its money. Purple tea contains anthocyanin, which has many medicinal properties and is particularly known to be beneficial against cardiovascular diseases. Dr Baruah adds that purple tea's high antioxidant effects "provide anticancer benefits, and improve vision, cholesterol and blood sugar metabolism." Purple tea also sports much lower caffeine content than black or green tea. So, if you're relishing the hit from your daily cuppa, a lower caffeine content is much more beneficial in your beverage. Sweet and woodsy, purple tea has a stronger flavour than other traditional chais, which can appeal to the strong Indian palette. Its taste is also influenced by its ability to be brewed at different temperatures and times. Eventually, it might not be your cup of tea, but it's worth a one-time try.
