The Tea Business

From the year-round plantations in Kenya to the centuries-old bushes in Malawi, the continent has a rich and growing tradition when it comes to crafting the perfect brew known as Tea. Millions of African’s rely on this on a daily basis to get by and I know YOU do too hence our interest in the potentials this business has in Africa.

In 2012, former corporate executive Swaady Martin decided to make a change, launching a luxury African brand infusing the distinctive flavors of the continent into gourmet teas. Sourced from countries across Africa, including Malawi and Rwanda, the South African-based company currently exports to 16 countries, and can be found on the shelves of high-end stores.
