Located in Serine hills that rise and drop as if to the beat of a drum, the tea estates of the Aberdare ranges, stand at an altitude of 1700-2200 meters above sea level. The saying the higher you go the cooler it becomes stands true at the Aberdare tea estates. Reminiscent of mythical Elf country, the ranges are found 30km North West of Nairobi. This catchment is home to one of Kenya’s key belts, extending from Kiambu all the way to Nyeri, covering Thika and Murang’a tea zones.
