Kenya is relatively new to the world of tea gardens. The first commercially produced teas were produced in 1924. However, it is a perfect environment for producing high quality teas with its red volcanic soils, high mountains, plentiful rain, and long sunny days.
Like Silver Needles and White Darjeeling, this tea is made entirely of buds. The terrior of the gardens has created a very unique white tea. The tea has that light clean taste one finds with other white teas but it also has a distinct flavor reminiscent of hazelnuts.
