Purple Tea With Ghg Health Benefits
Everyone likes talking about the health benefits of herbal tea especially green tea. But research has started confirming that purple tea with ghg has great health benefits.
A unique polyphenol. Purple tea has substantially more polyphenols than green or black teas. (16.5 percent, compared to 10.1 percent for black tea and 9.1 percent for green tea). It also has a polyphenol called GHG that’s not found in other tea varieties. GHG may be the compound responsible for purple tea’s anti-obesity effects, which I’ll tell you about a little later.
More anthocyanins than blueberries. Purple tea gets its color from anthocyanins—just like blueberries, raspberries, and other red or purple foods. Blueberries are particularly rich in anthocyanins, which have been shown in studies to help fight cancer, cardiovascular disease, and cognitive issues. But purple tea has a much higher content of anthocyanins than blueberries—1.5 percent compared to 0.1 percent. Source to read
Upon comparison with common teas (dry leaves) e.g. green tea, black tea and oolong tea, Purple Tea extract has the highest content of variety of Polyphenols antioxidants.
You can read more research done in the US on Purple tea here and here . Of course never forget to ask your doctors opinions on health matters. I love it more for the way it tastes than any health benefits.
Where is Purple Tea Grown?
On the most part, you will find purple tea in the tea growing regions of Kenya. According to the Tea Research Institute of Kenya, the tea has been under development for more than 25 years. Other countries such as Malaysia and India are starting out on it, but there’s no tea like tea from Kenya.
In this connection, the Tea Research Institute has pre-released a purple tea variety, TRFK 306/1 for commercial utilization targeting a unique tea product – anthocyanin-rich tea. This clone has been under development for the last 25 years and further works on the composition and antioxidant value of anthocyanins in it are still in progress. Source Tea Research Institute
Purple tea farming in Kenya is still in its infancy. The reason is that farmers have yet to mature their current tea crops. However, currently purple tea in Meru is considered more profitable than other tea farming.
What is Purple Tea and How Is it Packed?
This is a premium healthy tea for those that love quality. It’s best packed in purple tea leaves or loose leaf. Of course you want the best quality so it’s best to get it as fresh as possible from the farm. However, purple tea bags have also become popular. With their unique designs, the sweet flavor is not lost.
The most interesting development has been the Purple Iced Tea packaging that has been introduced. Forget about diet soda, if you want to stay healthy, then take tea on the go.
My favorite is of course Loose leaf purple tea. Where I can take my time and steep it to my desire.
