Kenya Tea Packers (KETEPA) was one of the players that promoted the Kenya Tea Festival, 2015.
The fun event, which took place at the Arboretum July 11 2015, attracted a number of tea producers and packers as well as tea fans who attended to the festival to sample different types of teas.
Dubbed “Swag ya Chai”, the tea festival was aimed at enabling tea players to interact with the general public and enlighten them on the health benefits of tea. It was also aimed at encouraging Kenyans to drink more tea to boost the tea industry through increased local consumption. The festival was organized by Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Authority (AFFA) – Tea Directorate.
Currently, Kenya consumes only five percent of the total tea produced in the country. The rest, 95 percent, is exported to overseas markets, mostly Arabic countries where tea is highly consumed.
KETEPA showcased its wide range of branded product.
Local artists, Size 8 and Avril, graced the occasion and entertained tea drinkers as they sampled different types of tea. The event took place on July 11, 2015 between 8 am to 5 pm.
