While most teas are made from the same plant, Camellia Sinensis, each variety has its own unique benefits. Purple tea is no exception, and it contains a special amino acid called L-theanine that helps relax the mind without causing drowsiness. It also has high levels of anthocyanin, which is similar to the antioxidants found in blueberries and acai berries. Purple tea has exhibited memory-enhancing effects and may help against neurodegenerative diseases like amnesia and dementia. It can help lower stress and anxiety and regulate blood pressure and heart rate. Additionally, it can increase metabolism which helps in weight loss, fight inflammation, and support a healthy immune system.
Our UENDURE Purple Tea comes from a small farm in Nandi Hills, Kenya. This rare variety of tea is incredibly delicate and fragrant. Its flavor is woody and sweet, with a light body that is free of astringency. It’s reminiscent of oolong but with stronger overtones of black plum.
Purple tea contains less caffeine than green or black tea, so it’s perfect for those with sensitive stomachs. This tea is a great choice for anyone looking to reduce their caffeine intake or switch from coffee or energy drinks to something more natural and healthier. Aside from the health benefits, purple tea is delicious! Its fruity and nutty flavor is refreshing and satisfying. It can be enjoyed on its own or with a little sugar, depending on your preference. It’s the ideal tea for a relaxing morning or afternoon break.
