Posted on | September 26, 2014 | No Comments

Every now and then, we like to spotlight different tea drinkers.  In the picture below, you can see Mark S of Bandon, Oregon, an avid he drinker.  He prefers black teas, having tried teas from Darvilles of Windsor, Marks & Spencer, all Punjana Teas and Welsh Brew.  But, perhaps his favorite brand is SD Bell Tea (which is no longer available in the US).

Mark has varied interests.  A farmer and rancher, among other things, you can see some of the cattle Mark raises. These cattle are a cross between Devon and Angus.  Plus, he ships compost around the country and grows apples, also shipping these around the country.  In the back of the picture, you can see the Siskiyou Mountains, a range along the Northwestern California and Southwestern Oregon coast.

Williamson Tea has installed a solar power park at its tea farm at Changoi, Kenya.  Nearly 1.5 hectares (approx 18,000 square yards) Williamson has created the first utilty-scale solar project in East Africa.  The project will generate 1.6 million kilowatt hours of electricity.  Located near the equator with 12 hours of daylight every day, this part of Africa is the perfect place for solar energy.

Creating this project is part of Williamson Tea’s efforts toward sustainable farming and more environmentally-friendly tea production.  Williamson is one of the only tea companies that grow, blend and market their own brand of tea.
