We identify with the Specialty Tea sub-category as one that offers exciting growth into the future, this being set against the backdrop of Kenya being the world’s largest exporter of black tea. Specialty teas are other types of teas apart from the regular black CTC tea and include Purple tea, Green tea, Yellow tea, White tea and Oolong tea in both CTC and Orthodox (whole-leaf) formats.
