The Great Rift Valley in East Africa is known for producing some of the finest tea leaves in the world. Here, tea is grown at a high altitude with a lot of rain and in red volcanic soil.
At this high altitude, low temperatures cause tea leaves grow at a slower rate, developing a greater depth of flavor and more powerful antioxidants. The tea is naturally grown without pesticides as pests can’t survive the climate at such high altitudes.
A cup of Kenya Oolong is a rare find since there are very few oolongs produced in Kenya!
