Origin: Kenya

Since tea was first introduced to the country in 1903, Kenya has grown in production to become the third largest tea grower in the world, thanks to a tropical climate, red volcanic soil and well-distributed rainfall. The most exceptional single-origin varieties are well worth seeking out, with a ripe, autumnal flavour and a sweet hint of spice…

Bless the Rains Down in Africa

Kenya produces roughly 350,000 tonnes of tea for export annually, often used in blends to give colour and richness to the cup. However, a truly excellent Kenyan tea can sometimes be tricky to find – the secret to this brew's extraordinary flavour is the estate's heady altitudes of 6,000ft and strong tradition of tea cultivation.
