Tea from Rwanda’s remote district Nyabihu has scooped the highest selling price at a competitive 45th auction in Kenya.
It has sold its BP1 grade at U$7.22/Kg representing a sharp rise compared to U$6.64/Kg at the close of October.
The auction is conducted by the East Africa Tea Traders Association.
“It’s the highest record price in the history of this auction. The recent highest price (6.64USD) was earned by the same factory,” the government said on Tuesday in reaction to the great news.
