African Tea Exporter and Suppliers
Africa is home to many countries that grow tea. The best-known tea growing countries in African are Kenya, and the other major tea producers include Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique producing about 32% of the world exports. Our African teas hail from these areas.
As one of the most recent tea-producing continents, African countries have been able to build on the experience of other producers. As a result, Africa is now a second-biggest grower of tea in the world, producing teas of high quality and good bright colors which are used for blending all over the world.
Kenya is the leading African tea producing country. Much of the tea that is drunk in the UK originates from Kenya. The tea that is grown to the East of the Rift is of a higher quality than that grown to the West, although some factories that are on the West of The Rift use East Rift leaf to raise the quality of their teas. Kenyan tea is bright, strong and flavorful mainly because it is roasted and processed using CTC (Crush Tear Curl) method and is used in many of the highly advertised brands. One can find various varieties of teas such as Moringa, African Rooibos, Lavender and Vanilla Rooibos, Honeybush, Kemetic, and many more. There are some naturally caffeine-free herbal teas as well such as Chamomile, Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Blood Orange, Licorice, Coconut Crush, and Rosebuds & Petals tea.
African teas are some of the best on the planet for health and well-being. They are rich in flavonoids which is a powerful antioxidant. Flavonoids in the African teas neutralize harmful free radicals, reduce the risk of heart diseases, and help prevent some cancers.
