  • A great planting of tea at 2000 m altitude. Located on hilly terrain, a beautiful garden where lunch quietly. A good lunch, home made dessert. Drink at will. We left around 11: 00 to arrive around noon to follow the tour with explanations about tea and its manufacture, foregoing lunch. Unfortunately the road was closed for work and we took a big detour to finally arrive, but late for the tour. However the owner of the plantation, extreme kindness has bothered us s explain the whole process: the plantation for the production of tea. Very very interesting. The breakfast was excellent. The very beautiful and peaceful place. I recommend. Lunch for two (without the explanation tour) cost us 3000 ksh each.
