Kenya Kaproret GFOP Black Tea
Orthodox qualities from Africa have become absolute rarities. The export business today is predominated by CTC teas, and only the highland plantations Kaproret, Saramek and Chemase are still cultivating hybrids 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 period. 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.
