We stayed near Limuru, about an hour from Nairobi. It's in the middle of rolling hills covered with tea and coffee plants. In the photo, the tea plants are the lighter green color. (They are also in the foreground.) We went for a family hike among the tea bushes. It was very soothing to get away from the hustle and bustle. Our walk was just what the doctor ordered.
Limuru provides ideal conditions for both tea and coffee growing. It's warm enough for no freezes and yet high enough altitude (cool) so that both plants grow slowly. Thus the tea leaves and coffee beans are infused with rich flavor.
