Kenyan Orthodox Black Tea

A Fine Collection of Garden Fresh Kenyan Orthodox Tea

Consumers buying black Orthodox teas are looking for a delightful tea experience from their cup of tea.

 

They appreciate the skill and labour needed to produce these teas. Because of this, they’re prepared to pay more for loose tea leaves or pyramid tea-bags.

 

Graded by leaf size, texture, and appearance, the dedication and care for the quality of tea packed is complemented by production, quality assurance, and packaging facilities that are globally competitive.

 

Get our exclusive range of Kenyan whole tea leaves, fresh from the gardens, and sold as the first-ever-sale of Kenyan premium Orthodox teas at the Mombasa Tea Auction in 2020.
