Tea Time

The trip to Kiambethu Tea Farm was educational, remarkable and amusing. We arrived and were welcomed by the owner - Fiona - and were shown what type of tea leaves they pick, and how they picked them (one by one which was very surprising). After that, we had a tasting of the tea they made with homemade biscuits. We  had a chance to grind the leaves and make our own tea!

Following this, we were all taken through the forest and shown trees and plants with medicinal purposes. We were accompanied throughout the forest by tea farm worker Julius and a big group of monkeys (which some of us were lucky enough to feed!). We came back home tired and full with 20 times the knowledge of tea we had before we came. Thank you so much to Fiona and the tea farm workers for welcoming us into their home.
