Our High Altitude farm – Kapchorua is our highest altitude farm at close to 7,000 feet above sea level and is bordered by a steep slope overlooking the tea fields. The dark reddish soils of the valley and slow growth of the tea bushes produce a bright edge to the colour of the teas and give a strong sculpted taste.
Equatorial with fresh light mornings and afternoon rainstorms that hug the high ridgelines.
Dusty red ‘Kenyan Earth’ soils with a rich topsoil lying on top of igneous rocks.
Bateleur Eagles, Sacred Ibis, Africa Mocker Swallowtail Butterflies and Wetland Orchids.
The high altitude slopes of Kapchorua produce a bright brisk tea, with a strong robust liquor, perfect to stimulate and awaken the body and mind.
