A little about the tea insdustry in Kenya:
Kenya’s tea plantation industry has a fascinating history that traces its origins back to British colonial rule. Here’s a brief overview:
- Introduction of Tea: Tea cultivation in Kenya began in the early 20th century when British settlers recognized the region’s potential for growing tea. They experimented with different tea varieties and found that the climate and fertile soil of certain areas were highly suitable for tea cultivation.
- Origin of Tea Varieties: The tea varieties initially introduced to Kenya were primarily Assamica and Camellia sinensis var. sinensis. Assamica tea plants originated in the Assam region of India, while Camellia sinensis var. sinensis is native to China. These plants were brought to Kenya by British colonialists.
- Expansion and Development: Over the years, Kenya’s tea industry expanded rapidly. The favorable climate, with well-distributed rainfall and elevations ranging from 1,500 to 2,100 meters (4,921 to 6,890 feet) above sea level, created ideal conditions for tea cultivation. Kenyan tea estates and smallholder farms multiplied across the country.
- Tea Varieties: While Kenya primarily started with the Assam and China tea varieties, the country has since developed its own tea varieties. Notably, Kenyan tea producers have created unique cultivars like TRFK 31 and TRFK 6/8 that are well-suited to the local climate and produce teas with distinctive flavour profiles.
- Production and Export: Today, Kenya is one of the world’s largest tea producers and exporters. Kenyan teas are known for their robust and bold flavours, making them popular choices for black tea blends and tea bags worldwide. Key tea-growing regions in Kenya include Kericho, Nandi Hills, and Limuru.
- Smallholder Farming: In addition to large tea estates, Kenya has a significant number of smallholder tea farmers. These farmers contribute significantly to the country’s tea production and economy.
Overall, Kenya’s tea industry has evolved over the decades, with the introduction of tea varieties from India and China and the development of unique Kenyan cultivars. The country’s tea gardens and estates continue to play a vital role in the global tea market, offering a wide range of teas appreciated by tea enthusiasts around the world.
