Nestled among the western highlands is the small town of Kericho. This high hill town receives almost daily rainfall, making this one of the most fertile areas in Kenya. As a result, the slopes around Kericho have long been Kenya’s richest tea growing area. Several large tea corporations established plantations here in the 1950’s. The early tea settlers claimed that Kericho rain showers were so regular that you could set your watch by the weather each afternoon. These ideal conditions continue to produce excellent quality tea.The plantations here create beautiful vistas of rolling green hills of tea, each one interlaced with lines of tea pickers winding through the bushes.
