Tumoi Nandi Hills Purple is an unusual purple leaf tea from Tumoi Teas Cooperative based high up in Nandi Hills, on the edge of the Great Rift Valley. The slightly purple colored liquor has a refreshing taste with tangy fruity notes.

Purple tea is a new cultivar of Camellia Sinensis, containing exceptionally high levels of catechins and epigallocatechin galette (EPCG) .It is called Purple Tea because the bushes grow purple leaves in the Kenyan tea gardens.
