Jack's Purple tea is of excellent quality, full leaf, and an entirely new category of tea! Purple tea is produced from the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, which is the same plant from which black, green, oolong, and other types of tea are made. Unlike other types of tea, however, the leaves of this new varietal are purple instead of green due to harvesting in high elevations in the Nandi Hills of Kenya.

Purple leaf tea has a similar flavor profile to oolong and is lighter than black tea but not quite as vegetal tasting as green tea. It’s also very high in antioxidants & anthocyanins, the beneficial compounds found in blueberries, blackberries, eggplant, purple grapes, and other blue, purple, or dark red foods. Purple tea is low in caffeine (less than green tea, slightly more than white tea).

Steeping Instructions:
1 1/2 tsp. per 10 oz. cup
4-5 mins at 190°-200°F
