Have you heard of purple tea?   Patches of purple darken these fields. The purple comes from leaves with high levels of anthocyanins, natural pigments that give cranberries, blueberries and grapes their color. These purple leaves are Africa’s newest — and most intriguing — tea. It has a high level of theaflavins and many other components. This makes it an ingredient to reduce the risk of hypatension and cardiac arrest.
