Tea is a very important product for Kenya. The industry provides employment for several hundred-thousand people from the small holders, through to the steamship companies that transport the tea around the globe. Tea is a relative newcomer to the Kenyan agricultural scene. It was started by British planters after World War II. Many of these planters were feeling unwanted in India (India achieved independence in 1947) and migrated to Kenya. Despite a ban on the transfer of plants and information, these planters smuggled Indian tea plants into Kenya. The plants thrived in the Kenyan climate and today Kenya is the world's second largest exporter of tea.
