#NEWYEARNEWTEA – January Blog and Purple Tea!

A fresh start!

2016 was an unforgettable and busy year for us here at The London Tea Company. We launched our new website, brought out a new limited-edition product and attended more events such as Taste of London, and London Coffee Festival to name a few!

Now, with the arrival of a new year most of us start thinking about resolutions which, more often than not, include things such as getting healthier or getting a promotion at work!

Despite all the good intentions, many of us tend to fall off the wagon only a month or two in and by the time we hit Valentine’s Day we’ve traded in smoothies and fruit for hot chocolate and biscuits. So what’s the solution?

Here at London Tea we have a great idea for a simple, sustainable New Year’s Resolution. Drink more tea!

So, where do you start?

Start with our NEW Purple Tea. It’s refreshingly tart with plenty of flavour and colour, and is delicious hot or as an iced tea. It’s a blend of purple tea straight from our estate in Kericho, hibiscus and natural flavours creating a blend that smells and tastes just as delicious as it looks.

What is Purple Tea?

Purple tea is a hybrid of Camellia Sinensis (what your breakfast tea is made from) and naturally grows purple at the top! Purple Tea is rich in Anthocyanin’s, which are found naturally in blackcurrants, red apples and grapes. They are responsible for the rich, dark and powerful purple colour of our tea.

Why is Purple Tea so good?

Anti-Oxidant*Purple Tea is rich in polyphenols which are purported to be excellent anti-oxidants

Anti-Obesity* – some research has shown that Purple Tea extract reduces lipid absorption in the intestines. It is also claimed to improve metabolism

Anti-Ageing of skin*the polyphenols in Purple Tea Extract are thought to reduce skin ageing, cell damage and inflammation resulting in a better, younger looking complexion

* based on Japanese research, not yet proven in the EU or USA


How do you Brew?

It is best to brew our Purple Tea for about 3 minutes and because of the delicious flavour, there’s no need to add anything. Just enjoy that delicious taste!
