Kenya's estimated tea production fell by more than 5 million kg in the first quarter of this year ending March

Kenya’s estimated tea production fell by more than 5 million kg in the first quarter of this year ending March, according to data from the Tea Directorate.

“Cumulative production for the first quarter was lower by 5.15 million kilos to stand at 135.83 million kilos, a decrease from 140.98 million kilos in a similar period in 2021. This was notably due to depressed rains,” said the government agency in a report.

The directorate warned that Kenya’s overall tea production is likely to fall this year due to the challenging weather conditions.
