Situated within this colorful corner of the world is one of Kenya’s most famous tea Estates, Tinderet. Tinderet, owing to its incredible lush surroundings and local dairy industry of the Nandi people, is often referred to as the land of milk and honey. It is on Tinderet that Nandi Safari tea is grown on bushes first planted in the mid 1950s. From early on, the estate quickly began winning awards for its product at local agricultural fairs.
To this day, these wonderful bushes produce some of the finest teas Kenya, and indeed Africa, has to offer. On the nose the infusion is light, fresh and almost winy. The cup is likewise exceptionally fresh, laden with flavory floral-like notes. Brew a pot and imagine yourself relaxing on the verandah of a hill station after a day spent witnessing the bewildering feast of color that is the Nandi hills – a spectacular tea.
