Wohoo, a KTDA tea themed restaurant! Now that is damn creative. I wonder what they'll call it?

Sounds great, but i'm sceptical of a parastatal running a restaurant. That place will be looted, nepotism .... the works.

interesting. It sounds like what the colombian government has done with it's coffee.

it's opened up these coffee cafe's in certain cities in america that sell coffee grown exclusively by colombian farmers. the coffee shops are called juan valdez.

If this works in kenya, they should think of expanding to america. tea drinking in america is becoming a health affair and tea shops that cater to this upwardly mobile niche crowding are making quite a bit of money here!

The Tea themed restaurant is an idea long overdue! Its a gr8 idea and am glad they hv decided 2 act on it.
Hope it will be well run and upto gd standards.

Shiroh said...

I think it is a great idea too!

69/\/\: Someting leafy, slighly catchy, maybe Kericho

kiplagat: I think they will leave the management alone to come up with the concept and run place (hopefully)

kenyanentrepreneur: nice comparison, bt let them not throw in a Moran to serve coffee

Unyc & Shiroh: agreed

KTDA's is a good idea, although I expected it Sasini to pursue the idea first. Getting to a crowded Java or Dormans in town just gets you thinking why did they wait so long - for the foreigners to show the way?

Alexander said...

I share Kiplagat's concern. It is founded.

If you are interested in more insight about the problem that is KTDA ("Kenya Tea Deterrence Agency" to overseas traders and importers), and into the tea woes of Kenya, please have a look at this article and the ensuing discussion:
