A little while ago our Founder Christine Simon was growing up on a tea farm in Limuru, Kenya when she first fell in love with tea. The history of Kenyan Tea dates back to 1903 in this very same region.
British settlers experimented by planting the very first few tea bushes from India on a small two-acre parcel of land, making Limuru the foundation of the country’s largest export industry.
With an academic background in Business Management and a persistent interest in tea, Christine now works closely with tea professionals in our parent company – an East African Tea Trade Association member, in marketing Kenyan Tea and creating sustainable relationships with all stakeholders.
She is specifically creating awareness of single origin Kenyan Tea as well as researching more ways to improve current tea processes to benefit the farmers more directly.
