Why East Africa Produces The Best Breakfast Tea

We consider our signature black teas to be truly special and unique in the tea world and we’d like to tell you why. The black teas we use for our breakfast tea are all sourced exclusively from the finest tea estates across East Africa, from Rwanda through to the Great Rift Valley in Kenya; this is generally considered to be where the very best teas are to be found. This equatorial region’s altitude, high rainfall and rich volcanic soil provide the ideal conditions that are integral to growing tea of unparalleled flavour and taste.

 
East-African Breakfast Tea

The geography and climate of the area where this tea is grown makes it uniquely placed to produce black tea of unparalleled flavour and taste. This equatorial region’s altitude of 1460-4500 metres above sea level, high rainfall and volcanoes along the Congo-Nile Crest provide the ideal conditions and rich soil that are integral to growing outstanding tea.

The tea bushes grow high above sea level, at a slower rate, where the temperature is relatively low, developing greater flavour before they are individually hand picked. The estate provides valuable jobs for people in the area and also runs a co-operative for over 2600 farmers.

To further our commitment to making the communities we are part of stronger, we support sustainable projects in these areas and charitable causes across East Africa. Here are three projects were are particularly proud to have and still been involved in – Virunga National Park, Rwandan Cricket Foundation & Rwandan Schools:
