The Speciality Tea workshop that was!
We are talking about very high quality, #artisanal, small batches of white, purple, green, yellow, black and dark teas as well as special manufacture teas. #quality
A couple of weeks ago we ran a workshop on quality assessment and tea categorisation at the Tea Research Institute, Kericho. We expected 25 people or so … more than 50 attended.
While most were #teaproducers, many other players in the value chain were represented too – from packers to trade bodies and trade facilitators.
It’s great to see such enthusiasm for this niche but growing sector in Kenya.
The sector needs so much more support!
This training was supported by the International Trade Centre under the Market Acces Upgrade project MARKUP.
We even got to do the tasting outside under the sun ☀️😊#tea #specialitytea #smebusiness
