Purple tea is an entirely new category of tea! Just like black or green tea, it is from the Camellia Sinensis plant, but the leaves of these tea bushes are purple instead of green. It was first discovered growing wild in the Assam region of India, and is now grown commercially in Kenya, Africa. Ours is from the Tumoi Tea Garden in the Nandi Hills of Kenya.
Lychee Purple combines purple tea leaves with lychee, apple, and pineapple for a fruity, tropical tea with a hint of sweetness.

How To Brew Lychee Purple
Use 1 level teaspoon per 6 oz. water. Heat water until briskly steaming (not boiling). Steep for 3 minutes. This tea may be infused twice or more.
We recommend preparing Kenyan Purple using a teapot, tea infuser, or tea filter. These brewing methods give the tea leaves enough room to expand as the tea steeps, resulting in a richer, more flavorful cup.
