Kenya Tea UK has launched a new collection of premium and ethically-sourced teas from Africa.

The range is sourced from Kenya and the company uses sustainable farmers certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Kenya Tea UK also works with local suppliers Union Tea Brokers Ltd to source the finest produce from high altitude tea plantations.

Peter Kamau, managing director of Kenya UK, said: “As some of the biggest tea-drinkers in the world, Brits have a distinct knowledge and appreciation for fine artisan products. As an independent curator and supplier of Kenyan teas, we are able to oversee every step of the process.

”From partnering with sustainable farmers, to ensuring tea leaves are properly picked, packed at source and shipped to market within the shortest time possible to retain their freshness. The result is a premium product with distinction, unspoilt by mass-production.”

The Kenya Tea UK product range includes Premium Loose Tea (rrp £4.80) and Premium Everyday Tea Bags (rrp £5.95), both of which are available to retailers and wholesalers now.

The company is also planning to launch a 50 Tea Bags product later this year with an rrp of £3.49.
