Myanmar (Burma): Programme Overview and Projects


  • Green tea with no bitter aftertaste

    Green tea with no bitter aftertaste

    For a long time, the tea farmers in Key Twin Kone processed the freshly-picked green tea leaves with their bare hands. Thanks to tea roasters, tea rollers and a solar dryer, working conditions have improved considerably for the farmers. The product is also refined: the tea is of a much finer quality, tastes better and can be sold for twice the price.
