Venus Pure Kenya Teas

Venus Pure Kenyan tea, has bright copper colour and “brisk” flavour, the perky liveliness, a balance of astringency and tannin that’s hard to describe but is instantly recognisable in a really refreshing cup of tea. Kenya’s equatorial location makes year-round production possible, guaranteeing a perpetually fresh product.

The bushes thrive on the high-altitude plantations, growing slowly, which makes for a better quality leaf, and there are few native bugs, so there is no need for pesticides. Picking itself is an art, done mostly by hand as machines take too much of the older, lower quality leaves. Up in the fields near Kericho, on the western side of the Rift Valley, a picker, would pluck the top two leaves and a bud from the stems of the Camellia sinensis bushes, the plant from which all tea, black and green, is produced.

Ndali Vanilla Pods

‘Ndali Vanilla… is some of the best I have ever come across. The scent is rich and intense, and the flavour deep, long lasting and absolutely true.’ Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

Ndali is unique in that it is the only company that both focuses solely on vanilla and is fully integrated: growing, curing, and packaging their own product.  Ndali is a Fairtrade company, but its founder goes beyond that, living, eating and breathing vanilla with his fellow farmers in Uganda. While many brands are now using pictures of farmers in their marketing it is few that genuinely have a close relationship with them.
