Wellness is defined as a state of being in good health especially as an actively pursued goal.

There has never been a more crucial time to pursue wellness than with the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

One key way of ensuring wellness for yourself and those around you is through diet and more specifically through healthy drinks. Have you tried Ketepa’s range of wellness teas? cannot get enough of these exciting teas from Ketepa, from the colourful Purple tea, the strong Orthodox tea, the refreshing White Tea and the rich Jani green tea.


KETEPA’s Purple Tea

The first thing you should know about this brilliant tea is that it has the sweetest aroma you will ever get from tea.

As you brew a healthy cup for yourself you won’t help but notice the hints of citrus and a refreshing flowery scent filling the room.


The next interesting thing about this special blend of tea is the colours you will experience as you make a cup for yourself.

And did you know that Purple Tea was exclusively developed in Kenya? All the more reason you should definitely make this a staple in your wellness regime.

KETEPA has made everything much easier by having a perfect recipe right on the pack so it’s much easier for you to brew and enjoy this tea in a matter of minutes.

  1. Boil water in a kettle and let it cool to about 80 degrees Celsius.
  2. 1 tablespoon of Ketepa Purple tea leaves will brew 1 cup of tea so add the proportional amount of tea leaves to a clean teapot or clean container.
  3. Add the hot water and give it up to 5 minutes for the tea to brew.
  4. Add some lemon juice to the tea for the colours to develop, the more lemon you add the deeper the colour will be.
  5. Strain directly into the serving cups. You may add honey to your taste.

KETEPA’s Purple Tea is great for your heart, it reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and hypertension. It is a stomach friendly source of caffeine and it also has more antioxidants than black and green tea.
