Purple leaves naturally grow this colour on the tea plant (Camellia Sinensis Assamica). The reason the leaves are purple, are because they contain the super antioxidant 'Anthocyanin'. The very same super antioxidant that is also found in blueberries, pomegranates and acai berries. Purple Leaf Tea is also a colour changing tea… squeeze a couple of drops of lemon into your tea cup and watch the colour change to pink.
