Life Extension reviews Emrok Green and Purple Teas
March 18, 2018
Our newest green and purple teas were just reviewed in Life Extension magazine, which reports on nutrition, hormones, anti-aging, and diseases such as atherosclerosis, cancer and diabetes.
"The new teas described in this article are sourced from a family farm in Emrok without chemical sprays. Although the state-of-the-art tea factory was only built in 2012, owners Robert and Emily Keter won the “Best Tea from Kenya” award at the 2015 North American Tea Conference. Since then, their green and purple teas have taken on connoisseur status internationally for their uniquely rich taste, safety, purity—and most notably, their abundance of polyphenols. This acclaim has enabled the Keters to finance many charitable and schooling projects throughout the region. Their farm is Rainforest Alliance certified, and a participant in the Ethical Tea Partnership. Emrok tea is grown in Nandi County in Kenya’s Rift Valley region at an altitude of 6,561 feet above sea level, where the cool climate and rich volcanic soil are considered ideal for tea cultivation."
