Falling prices for tea are hurting many tea farmers. Hundreds of Kenyan farmers have removed tea bushes from their fields because of the lower prices. They decided to plant a healthy new purple tea in hopes of earning more money. But there may not be a demand for purple tea. Some farmers who exchanged crops are worried. Nelson Kibara is one of them. He has been growing tea in the Kerugoya area of Kenya for 40 years. He says tea prices this year have been so low that he has made almost no profit. He says he must grow different kinds of tea if his business is to survive. He and other farmers have been planting a tea developed by the Tea Research Foundation of Kenya. The leaves of the plant are purple and brown. When the tea is boiled, the drink has a purple color. Medical researchers say purple tea is healthier than black tea. They also say it could be sold for a price that is three to four times higher than the price of black tea. But Nelson Kibara says he is often forced to sell purple tea for the same price as green tea. The Kenya Tea Development Agency represents small farmers in the country. It says the tea farmers planted purple tea before there was a market for it. Tea is Kenya’s top farm export. Stephen Mutembei works at the Tea Research Foundation. He says the Kenyan economy is too closely-linked to the price of black tea. He says the country needs to find new products like purple tea to help its tea industry become more stable. Nelson Kibara says he will continue growing purple tea plants for now. But if the market does not improve, he will plant cabbages next year.
