The Lelsa Estate was planted in 1950, on land that was previously used to grow grey eucalyptus, and faint hints are said to colour the profile of this tea – if there is, it’s very subtle. This is a delicious black tea with floral notes, but also with a robust character and malty Kenyan edge, that takes milk well.
Kericho town is a sub-district of Tinderet, close to Mount Tinderet (place of thunder), situated just off the equator. It has 707 hectares of tea fields!
