While Purple tea(Camellia Sinensis) is a new varietal that is propagated by grafting and cutting as opposed to seeding. This particular is known as TRFK 306/1 and is rich in anthocyanin(a flavanoid),the plant itself has a red-purple colour but the tea comes out with a slightly purple hue. Purple tea has almost twice the amounts of antioxidants found in other teas.The regal colour is as a result of high levels of anthocyanins, which has many anti-inflamory and anti-viral benefits.
