1. Nairobi: Tea Farm Day Trip with Lunch at kiambethu
Enjoy a full-day tour from Nairobi of Gatura Greens Farm, and learn more about how tea is cultivated and picked. Make specialty tea to bring home, trek through the nearby forest, and take a dip in a local waterfall. Experience a farm-fresh 3-course meal and a bonfire at the end of the tour. Begin the experience at 9:30 am with tea and fresh scones and listen to the host give an informal history about the farm. Enjoy an introductory tea tasting before heading out to the purple tea farm. Learn how to pick tea with the guides, before trying your hand at picking some purple tea. Take the tea back to the farm and learn how to make your own specialty orthodox tea: how to roast it, roll it by hand, dry it then pack it to take home. Head off to the waterfall trek through a beautiful bamboo forest finishing off with a refreshing dip at the waterfall by the farm. Return back to the farmhouse in time for a farm-fresh 3-course meal, crowning the day with a bonfire in the gardens.
