Kericho Gold Teas were awarded during the Hospitality Qatar 2017 exhibition in Doha last week.
The brand showcased its green and black teas which are blended and packaged at its Mombasa-based factory from fine teas in Kenya and carefully selected by expert Tea Tasters for the richness of their taste, flavour and aroma.
Kericho Gold’s win is a vote of confidence to Kenya’s black tea in the Arab market currently dominated by China, India and Sri Lanka who are riviling Kenya in term of production.
Latest global tea production estimate show that China produced 2.4 billion kilogrammes last year followed by India 1.2 billion. Kenya produced 450 million kilogrammes and exported 25 per cent of it to the world.
Kericho Gold is the best quality of teas available in the market and purely blended from Kenya. We are glad to share the rich aroma with the world,” said Gold Crown Beverages director Naveed Ariff
Gold Crown Beverages introduced Kericho Gold black and green tea ranges in Qatar early this year and now available in more than 25 branches at the leading supermarket, Al Meera.
The brand is targeting the Arab market with it’s flavoured and fruit infusion teas.
Last year, Kericho Gold launched 11 ranges of Attitude teas to tap into the youthful market.
