KTB to enhance tea tourism

The Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) wants tour operators to include tea tourism as part of their domestic and international visitor packages.

The “tea-tourism experience,” according to acting CEO John Chirchir, is a ready product that should be packaged and included in travel itineraries as part of a larger strategy to diversify Kenya’s tourism offerings. Chirchir told a Malaysian trade delegation during a visit to the Kipsigis Tea Highlands factory in Bomet that tour operators should capitalize on Kenya’s popularity as a tea exporting country to package and sell tea experiences tours.

“We are already on the global map as a tea destination and we have to leverage this opportunity by showing the visitors how we process our popular tea from the bush to the cup, ‚Äúsaid Chirchir.
