You May Want to Know: Approximately 1980 metres above sea level, lies the vast estate and expanse of the Kericho Highlands which has over the years, distinguished itself by producing 2 things of remarkable quality: Kenyan tea and Kenyan marathon runners! I make no insinuation that the two things are related! Drinking Kenyan tea will not make you a marathon runner, but, suffice it to say, both the tea and the runners certainly benefit from the comparatively cool and wet atmospheric conditions of the red-soil highlands. The two rainy seasons provide a lush climate that 'provides ideal conditions for brisk black teas known for their exceptional flavour'.
"But don't just take our word for it. Brew a pot today, savour the aromatic fragrance of the leaf as it brews, and sip your way to a moment of pure flavourful bliss!"
Kenyan tea from the Kericho Highlands is ‘stronger’ than any other tea I have ever had. You need very little of it to make a wholesome cup. The Kenyans almost always drink it with milk and sugar and call it chai masala. When they drink it black, they call it ‘strungi’ – a corruption of the English word ‘strong’!
