Orthodox qualities from Africa are today absolute rarities. The export business today is predominated by CTC teas, and only the highland plantations Kaproret, Saramek and Chemase in the district of Kericho are still cultivating crossings of Chinese bushes. The demand largely exceeds the small yields, but thanks to longstanding business relationships we have always been able to secure the best qualities from the second main plucking phase. Due to their striking, golden brown leaf tips, their shining orange-colored cup and the strong, slightly flowery flavor those are often mistaken for Chinese Yunnan teas.
