Kenya Eyes Tea Exports to IranKenya Eyes Tea Exports to Iran

The Kenya Tea Development Agency says it has found new market for tea in Iran following the lifting of UN sanctions. According to KTDA national chairman, Peter Kanyago, the agency will continue to expand the orthodox tea market to dislodge India and Sri Lanka that have dominated the Iranian market over the years, Kenyan news portal Daily Nation reported.

Orthodox teas are whole leaf teas produced using the traditional process and they generally fetch higher prices than those processed by the crush, tear and curl process common with black tea leaves.
