This single estate Kenyan tea is the very best of its kind.

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. It took some searching, but this sublime example of a fine single estate Kenyan tea is the very best of its kind.

Produced by the Kaimosi Estate in the North Nandi district of Kenya, this tea owes its taste to heady altitudes of 6,000 ft and a strong tradition of tea cultivation. The estate was founded in the 1940s and most of the tea harvested today comes from the original plantings. The uniquely delicate, spidery leaves produce a rich, russet brew full of ripe autumnal flavours; there's a layered complexity to the cup, yielding a plummy sweetness and a slight hint of cinnamon spice. Full-bodied and flavoursome, it's excellent for breakfast with a buttery croissant.

A note from Whittard

“I’m a huge oolong fan – the sheer diversity of different flavours is pretty mind-boggling. My favourites are the creamy, almost buttery high grown oolongs grown in Taiwan.”

- Bethan, Specialist Tea Buyer


Kenya is the largest tea producing country in Africa, with 69000 hectares of land under cultivation by smallholdings or shambas. Since first being established in 1903 the Kenyan tea industry has gone from strength to strength, profiting from a tropical climate, red volcanic soil and well-distributed rainfall. The sheer bulk of tea produced means it’s not always of the highest quality, and Kenyan tea has traditionally been used to add colour and strength to blends. Nevertheless it’s well worth seeking out the best single estate varieties. With their ripe, autumnal flavour and sweet hint of spice they’re well worth a cup of their own…



Blessed with an equatorial climate that allows for tea-growing all year round, Kenya is the largest tea producing country in Africa and accounts for 22% of world tea exports. We've given this tea the number 22, though it's far superior to most Kenyan teas…
