The fantastic Jua Na Mlima “purple tea” is now available at All Things Earthly at the Noordhoek Farm Village.
What is purple tea you might ask?
Like all other tea originates from the Camellia Sinensis plant; the same plant that we get our familiar black and green tea from. The purple appearance of the tea is caused by a unique natural occurring mutation which produces anthocyanin.
Anthocyanin is present in blueberries and with Purple Tea you will get the same anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-cancer benefits benefits…just on hyper-drive!
Top health benefits of Purple Tea you (probably) didn’t know about
Anthocyanin has many medicinal properties and is particularly known to be beneficial against cardiovascular diseases.
These anti-oxidants are known to provide anti-cancer benefits, improve vision, and aid in cholesterol and blood sugar metabolism.
At the same time, caffeine content is lower than that of black & green tea.
Purple tea also contains higher amounts of another anti-oxidant – polyphenols. More than black or most green teas (16.5 percent versus 10.1 percent for black and 9.1 for green).
Like green tea, purple tea also has high levels of another form of anti-oxidant known as catechins, especially EGCG which is the powerful anti-oxidant found in green tea.
These neuro-protective antioxidants permeate the blood brain barrier significantly boosting brain antioxidant capacity.
Head there for your health fix!
