Like most institutions in Uganda, the country's tea industry has seen many ups and downs over the last half century. Tea has been grown in the country since the days of the British Empire, first planted by Indian immigrants who brought their knowledge with them from plantations back home.
One of the best examples of Uganda's tea output is grown on Mityana Estate. In recent years, Mityana has begun producing premium loose leaf teas to compete with some of the more famous Kenyans. The cup has a medium thickness with a good, rich mouth feel, slight malty notes and medium astringency and is exceptional with a dash of milk. We're proud to offer this fabulous tea and to do our part to support Ugandan growers. Serving the cream of Uganda shows your customers that you're willing to go the extra mile to bring them something special. Enjoy!
