The aspiring African continent has been known for decades for supplying mainly the UK, but also countries such as Pakistan, Egypt, or Afghanistan, with bulk tea. Mainly the grades CTC, Fannings and Dust. For some years now more and more plantations are on the way to turn towards the production of high-quality leaves and specialities, besides producing bulk tea for blending. We can now find black, half-fermented, green and even white tea. Very well crafted black and green tea qualities from Rwanda, cultivated in its North, in the mountainous regions around Kinihira. And also top teas from the Kericho district in Kenya, located north of the Rift Valley.

South Africa is also the home of Rooibos in all its varieties and flavours.

This African selection offers an excellent alternative to the Asian world of tea.
