Alluvia™ Purple Tea
About Alluvia Purple Tea
A new variety of Camellia sinensis, Alluvia Purple Tea Extract was developed by the Tea Research Foundation of Kenya after 25 years of crossbreeding. The tea is cultivated at mountain areas with 1,500 and 2,500 meters above sea level and exposed to strong UV rays from the sun. The young leaves and shoots get their purple color from their anthocyanin content and have antioxidant activity significantly higher than green, oolong, and black teas.* Additionally, Alluvia Purple Tea contains a unique polyphenol, GHG, not found in other tea varieties.
